I am in San Francisco at one of the most successful incubator places called “SOMAcentral”. Business incubators are offices where ideas are nurtured and companies are born. Young people rent office space and work on new ideas and inventions in a creative environment to realize their dreams.
Incubators provide all kinds of services. Besides office spaces, they provide management consulting, legal and accounting services etc., the list can go on and on. But what fascinated me most is the variety of the new ventures. Solutions, products, ideas for all kind of services in our daily life as well as for the enterprise, made in U.S.A. And all are done by using social media and the Internet as a backbone.
When I walk through the aisles at SOMAcentral, I hear English, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, French, German, Russian, etc. This is a global community based in San Francisco, with strong cultural links to the global market. I see diversity, I see out-of-the box ideas and I see bright young people working on their dreams in a great environment.
In the San Francisco Bay Area, to have a dream is a positive attribute.
