Will Silicon Valley invest outside of the Bay area?
i am based in the Tampa area but used to work for a high flying startup that was backed by some venture folks in Menlo Park (where the company was headquartered). the founders used to say that they loved being in Silicon Valley because there were so many vcs there and that most vcs would only invest in companies that were less than 50 miles away because they wanted to check in...Do you guys have that same philosophy? Is there any hope for people like me that live in places like Tampa to find interest from Silicon Valley?
