Just recently, Elabram Systems – Group Managing Director, Mikel Yaw and Head of Technology, Eugine Yaw joined the 5 days Silicon Valley USA Immersion Trip organised by MDEC on 2nd November 2016.
The immersion trip cover all the places & companies like GE Digital, PlugNPlay, Facebook, BootUp, MDEC Americas Office, Hero City – Tech Match & Expo, Google Campus and PARC. Elabram Systems managed to pitch one of its solutions to many venture capitals and partners in Hero City in the Tech Match event in Silicon Valley.
According to the dictionary, “The word “silicon” originally referred to the large number of silicon chip innovators and manufacturers in the region, but the area is now the home to many of the world’s largest high-tech corporations, including the headquarters of 39 businesses in the Fortune 1000, and thousands of startup companies that includes Facebook, Google and more. Silicon Valley also accounts for one-third of all of the venture capital investment in the United States, which has helped it to become a leading hub and startup ecosystem for high-tech innovation and scientific development, that’s why startup innovators are pitching their way to success at Silicon Valley.”
“It was in the Valley that the silicon-based integrated circuit, the microprocessor, and the microcomputer, among other key technologies, were developed. As of 2013, the region employed about a quarter of a million information technology workers.”
“As more high-tech companies were established across the Santa Clara Valley, and then north towards the Bay Area’s two other major cities, San Francisco and Oakland, the “Silicon Valley” name eventually came to refer to all high-tech businesses in the region. The term is now generally used as a synecdoche for the American high-technology economic sector. The name also became a global synonym for leading high-tech research and enterprises, and thus inspired similar named locations, as well as research parks and technology centers with a comparable structure all around the world.”
