San Francisco Bay Area: Where It All Started
San Francisco has long been known as the startup capital for many, many years now. It's inspired many variations of its iconic nickname: "Silicon Valley", throughout startup territories in the U.S, Europe, Asia, etc... For being such an iconic city, one may believe the bubble will certainly burst sometime soon, yet Silicon Valley has proven time and time again, it's not going anywhere. At mindStart, we recognize this fact and are always excited to come across innovative startups, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area. Read on to learn more about the startup scene in SF and how mindStart plans to help SF's finest startups continue to grow through our excellent, US-based, outsourced customer service.
Investor to Startup Ratio
As of this publication, there are currently 17,438 startups and 21,825 investors in the San Francisco Bay Area. This ratio is perfect for economic growth within the startup community and is most likely the reason for San Francisco's sustained success throughout the years. This ratio demonstrates opportunities for exponential acceleration, for both the startups and the investors, due to the similar number of each respective party. With everything from mattress startups to cricket-based food startups to winery guide apps for Napa Valley; there's such an abundance of both startups and investors, it truly remains as "The Wild, Wild West" to some degree.
Where Will San Francisco Stand in the Future?
San Francisco will most likely become the "corporate startup capital", meaning mostly big players in the startup game will have locations in SF and it will cause many smaller, yet growing startups to search elsewhere for locations which better suit their budget. This seems to be the case currently to a certain level, yet it will only become much more apparent as time progresses. People are migrating in droves from SF to alternative startup hubs such as Austin, Kansas City, Portland, Seattle, etc... due to high housing prices and people trying to determine "how much house can I afford?". This is proving to be an interesting time for San Francisco, as they're the leaders in the startup world and most other startup locales seem to follow suit eventually. Only time will tell what will happen in Silicon Valley, but it will most certainly be interesting.
