What’s Silicon Valley without the Silicon?

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.

How to become venturable

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

 

Are you thinking of starting a hardware company?  Although it takes a lot more for a hardware startup to become “venturable” than a software startup, viable funding can be found.

Ilgiz Akhmetshin, of SKTA Innopartners details several ways for hardware startups to raise additional funds in his blog:  “How to Raise Seed Investments for a Hardware Startup.”

Predictions 2013 – Olivier Coudert on the cloud and a new model for hardware startups

Monday, February 4th, 2013

 

Our next prediction comes from respected blogger, consultant and software architect, algorithm, EDA and cloud computing expert, Olivier Coudert.

 

Olivier Coudert

In 2013, one major semiconductor company will use the services of a third party to offload its computing resource requirements (for synthesis, simulation, signoff, shared project, or anything they deem important) to the cloud. This third party will work with EDA vendors and cloud providers to build virtual design centers, where customers are given the means to develop, test, and sign off their product. And when I say “cloud” I mean major players in the cloud computing market.

Some semiconductor companies have been feeling the pain of capital investment in datacenters they only need at peak hours. So those companies are getting smart and will work with third party companies to access virtual design centers, build on demand, and pay as-they-go.

Soon any startup will have access to the computing resources and the EDA software they need to focus on innovation without breaking the bank. A new model for hardware startups, which the VCs will love. You will no longer need $10M to fund a hardware company, just a few $100Ks.
