Silicon Valley is the epicenter of technology entrepreneurship, the place where Twitter, Facebook, Tesla, Uber, Google, and Apple were born. Beyond that, it is unique in its incredible network of highly skilled professionals who have migrated here from cultures all over the world. The Valley is where « anything can happen », the place where you can learn to « think and act big » and positive. Nobody cares how old you are, how you dress, or what nationality you are. The most important thing is what you are able to do.
