Vipin has taken a pass at the geography issue. It’s hard to dispute that The Valley is the crucible of a lot of innovation. It’s also hard to ignore the great innovations that come from other areas.
But Vipin’s thesis, I would say, transcends geography- I think it provides good counsel for any entrepreneur. Whether you’re starting a company in Palo Alto or Lancaster, Pennsylvania, if you want to succeed, the ingredients are the same.
