The report we launch today is specifically focused on the subset of the so-called “Bridge Organizations”, that play a key role of support, aggregation and network.
Our ultimate goal is to create a central directory for startups, corporates, investors, and governments interested to find information on the organizations which might help plan an approach or a presence in Silicon Valley.
Overall, we believe that one of the most relevant findings of this research is the confirmation that Innovation as an industry is playing a increasing role in countrywide economies and growth strategies. So much so that several innovation outposts of European countries in Silicon Valley have been used as the first foot-in-the-door, with plans to build overtime more structured and formal government representation to continue representing the economic interests of the European countries.
