Silicon Valley is Not About Startups Anymore

Silicon Valley is no longer the best place to start a company … It’s a wonderful place, but it’s a very challenging one also. So if you’re starting something today, DO NOT come to Silicon Valley right away. It’s less expensive, less risky, and probably easier to start somewhere else, due to less competition. Get some level of product-market fit first, get some early traction; then — if you need it — raise some money where your network is stronger (again, guess where that is) and *only then* think about getting to the next level and moving to Silicon Valley.
