Spending this past week in Silicon Valley has been a very eye-opening experience. We had the opportunity to get a glimpse at a wide myriad of companies, from startups with a technology oriented culture, to global consultancy firms whose culture overflowed with signs of artistic innovation and design thinking.People in the valley don't settle for adequacy. These entrepreneurial-minded individuals are constantly attempting to improve their own lives through life hacks and inventions, while subsequently improving the lives of many others around them. The majority of people who live and/or work here are extremely driven and willing to commit themselves fully in business ventures and projects. Silicon Valley is a place where abstract ideas become concrete services and products.
