Europe, it’s time we built our own Silicon Valley | VentureBeat | Entrepreneur | by Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten, The Next Web: "Back in 2013, I was one of nine entrepreneurs who contributed to the European Startup Manifesto. With Dutch politician Neelie Kroes at the helm, Niklas Zennström (Skype, Kazaa), Daniel Ek (Spotify), myself, and six others tried to boil down the solution to Europe’s startup problems into a simple, 22-point action plan for managing and powering growth across the continent. Our action plan includes directives to help startups stretch across borders, make it easier for them to hire and fire, increase venture capital investments, and keep our best entrepreneurial brains from being lured overseas."
I think Europe already has two Silicon Valleys. One is called Cambridge, England and the other is called Germany.
