The State of Entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley

If you’re an entrepreneur or thinking about starting a company Silicon Valley seems to be the place to be.

Despite the perceived friendliness of the region towards startups, 99% of entrepreneurs are not able to get funding. While some may assume that investors are simply removing the ‘would be failure entrepreneurs’ out of the scene, this couldn’t be farther from the truth; in fact, many of these companies would likely be profitable. So the question is, why would so many potentially profitable companies be rejected?
