Step USA - Why Silicon Valley?

Starting out as THE hub for early telegraph and radio industries, San Francisco’s potential has been recognized as potential center for new industries and innovators. STEM research found its base here, driven by renowned Bay area universities, venture capitalists and investment of the U.S. Department of Defense. Since the 70s, San Francisco/Silicon Valley has been home to start-up and global tech companies.

Now a base for household names and big business heavyweights Apple, Google and Tesla; Silicon Valley has evolved to be the top address for startups from around the world.
