What’s Silicon Valley without the Silicon?
November 18th, 2013 by Ed Lee
SKTA Innopartners director Angel Orrantia spoke with the San Jose Mercury’s Peter Delevett on why Silicon Valley’s VC community has to start investing again in hardware.
Sure, as Orrantia infers, hardware is tougher (and will probably take longer) to get an exit out of. But hardware is how electronics ultimately works with its human users. So funding the hardware ecosystem in, say semiconductors, is absolutely crucial to Silicon Valley’s continued role as the mecca for high tech innovation.
That’s why Orrantia says it’s time to put the silicon back in Silicon Valley.
