I'm not trying to throw a flamebait, but on the other hand I want to learn from the success.
Why is the ecosystem to build a startup seems to be so viable in USA? How did it all started? I know this might seems to be a Chicken or Egg question, but I'm sure we can trace the root and learn it from there and hopefully try to implement it outside the USA.
It seems the whole ecosystem in USA is so supportive and orchestrated so well.
There's lots of Angel investors and Venture capitalists that have faith in you. In some countries, there isn't enough (or close to none) Angels and VCs.
On the other side of the spectrum, the consumers is willing to spend lots of money on technology that can scratch the itch on their back. It seems technology has become a primary needs in USA, which sometimes is ridiculous and hard to do elsewhere. :d
Many innovation also originated in uni in the US. Take a look at how many startups started from uni students from MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard and Carnegie Mellon. The collaboration between business and university seems to work really well.
So does anybody know the answer to this question? So those of us that is not currently living in the USA can learn and try to implement it at the place/country where we live now instead of keep asking this forum how to go and start a startup in Silicon Valley?
Yes we know there many cash cow in the US, but I'm sure cash tycoon is anywhere and not limited to the US alone. But how does the cash cow in the US are willing and have faith to invest in a startup?
Can I really conclude it's all in the mentality of Americans which like to be different therefore they innovate? e.g:
- Take a look at the steering wheel in American cars which is on the left hand side
- Take a look at American english which is alot different with British English
- Take a look at the unit of measurement which is totally different that other country use etc.
Note: That was only for educative purpose, not flaming.
