Inspirational Quotes About Silicon Valley



Silicon Valley in California has been the tech mecca of the world since 1939 when David Packard and William Hewlett started an electronics company in their Palo Alto garage. It's reputation grew tenfold when Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak did the same almost 40 years later. It's a place of innovation, risk, and inspiration for many in technology and business field. Here are some of my favorite inspirational quotes from Silicon Valley startup leaders and quotes about the aura of Silicon Valley.
