Is Silicon Valley still the world’s technology hub????

Be it Google, Amazon, Microsoft, eBay, Samsung or be it Apple, they all share a common trait between them – they don’t just sell products, they focused on creating a platform.

The Potential to leverage effect of the network is what these companies had learned long ago and had mastered them.

This is what gives Silicon Valley a huge advantage then rest of the players in the industry.

No matter how big Silicon Valley is and how technology sophisticated it is, but the world is seeing signs of a big slowdown in Silicon Valley.

The following factors are responsible for slowdown of Silicon Valley –

Cost of living and shortage of affordable housing

California has been the technology hub of the world and home for silicon valley ,the cost of living is high as well as there is an acute shortage of housing , it seems the situation is not going to improve instead it will worsen further.

Being a technology hub, there are tremendous job opportunities with 1000s of jobs every month with limited housing supply has worsened the conditions further.

The monthly house rent is very high as close to $3500 which makes young entrepreneur to start a business in Silicon Valley nearly impossible. 

Hence many startup entrepreneurs are moving to places like Austin, UK etc. which offer affordable cost of living.

Completion

Silicon Valley is the best place to start your business but establishing you and your business in Silicon Valley can be extremely difficult.

Keeping the cost of living, jobs and other factors aside, Silicon Valley has extreme competition due to which it becomes difficult to start your business. So much completion exists in Silicon Valley that it is difficult to stand out, due to which many of startup entrepreneurs are moving to such places which offer less competition. Instead of loitering around Silicon Valley, it is advisable to launch a business at such places where there are less startup and much growth opportunity.

Silicon Valley has started showing signs of slowdown and this economic slowdown is taking troll on technology hub of the world.

Job growth slowed down, investors are becoming more and more frugal, the startup is failing etc.

A slowdown inflow of venture capital money, stagnant growth in IPO market and studies and reports are showing that tough times is ahead of silicon valley and soon silicon valley has to face problems and they projected the end of the valley is near.
