Why the Name SiliconCaribe.com?
I believe that even as we are small as a region (a little over 40 million people), we’re quite powerful in terms of innovation and influence, so I created the Caribbean’s own derivative from the legacy that is Silicon Valley, which is a global synonym for all things high-tech. Silicon Valley is the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California in the United States. The term originally referred to the region’s large number of silicon chip innovators and manufacturers, but eventually came to refer to all the high-tech businesses in the area. Despite the development of other high-tech economic centers throughout the United States, Silicon Valley continues to be the leading high-tech hub because of its large number of engineers and venture capitalists.
