Last Thursday I stopped by at the Clean Tech Investment Forum organized at the incubator where my current start-up company resides. It was the opportunity to get the temperature of the clean-tech sector early in the year. The room was packed.
Plug&Play Center is one of those unique places that only exist in Silicon Valley: hosting more than 150 early-stage companies, it also hosts a full-scale data center, a cozy cafeteria and a VC Pavilion. It is not surprising that many foreign entrepreneurs choose this place to go after their dreams and benefit from the constant interaction with other start-ups, simply around coffee breaks or during one of the frequent networking events.
