The region, whose name derives from the Santa Clara Valley in which it is centered, is home to many of the world's largest technology corporations as well as thousands of small startups. The term originally referred to the region's large number of silicon chip innovators and manufacturers. Despite the development of other high-tech economic centers throughout the United States and the world, Silicon Valley continues to be the leading startup ecosystem for high-tech innovation and development, accounting for one-third (1/3) of all of the venture capital investment in the United States.
