Silicon Valley is the birthplace of entrepreneurial venture capital and for decades has been the epicenter for innovation and disruptive technologies that have created millions of jobs and changed how the world lives. Increasingly, however, Silicon Valley has become more than simply a geographic location. It's now a state of mind that has gone viral worldwide from Austin to Boston, Chicago to Sao Paulo, and Shanghai to Mumbai and Dubai. Just as access to capital in the United States greatly expanded three decades ago, driving strong economic growth, we're now seeing new technologies and financial instruments being married to new marketplaces.
