A treat for attendees of the final day of IBM's SmartCamp Global Finals included an opening speech by California's own Lieutenant Governor, Gavin Newsom. Amongst the many things said to praise our great state, Gavin Newsom proudly stated that there is simply "No innovative place like California." After all it is here where everything is happening, in particular it is the Silicon Valley that makes the technology world go round.
Entrepreneurship takes from past, present, and future. California has been apart of the past, we are the present, and we will be the future. Hearing Gavin Newsom speak only reminded me, a college student who chose to stay in California, how lucky I am to get to be apart of such a great state. Seeing all these global companies run to the Silicon Valley in order to further pursue their business developments, illustrates that we are really already at an advantage. Take advantage of that lead and the opportunities around you, never seize to follow the IBM model "think" amongst the midst of our fast pace technological environment.
"This is the place to be, the best has yet to come."
