Week 31 – The Birth of Silicon Valley

What made Silicon Valley a Hub for entrepreneurs? And why has that become as much of a liability as an advantage?

Silicon Valley was formed in the area between San Jose, California, and San Francisco as a result of Frederick Terman, the legendary dean of Stanford engineering school during the 1940s and 1950s. He created the tradition of Stanford faculty starting their own companies.

Watch how the world’s greatest tech hub arose from a simple discussion in a luxury hotel in San Francisco, and grew to become a technological powerhouse that “changed the world” and plays a part in all the modern devices we use today.
