The Next Silicon Valley, a New Media Website, Launches to Cover Global Innovation, Technology Development and Technology-Based Economic Development With Worldwide Reach

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 14, 2010) - The Next Silicon Valley, a new media website covering global innovation, technology development and technology-based economic development, launched today. Targeted to top-level global technology, business, investment and economic development professionals worldwide, The Next Silicon Valley tracks and reports news, issues, trends and local developments from an exclusive worldwide perspective.

In development for more than a year, The Next Silicon Valley website has already established a strong following in key worldwide innovation centers including Brazil, China, Europe, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, Russia, South East Asia, UK and the U.S. with online reach into more than 90 countries and 500 cities worldwide.

The Next Silicon Valley is led by award-winning media veteran Richard Wallace, founder, publisher and editorial director of the website. Wallace has covered Silicon Valley and global innovation as a journalist, reporter and editor for more than 30 years. Wallace's reporting team includes Drew Wilson, a seasoned journalist and international affairs expert, who serves as the website's editor. The site draws on a global network of correspondents and analysts in the Asia, China, Europe, India and the U.S. and covers a broad set of enabling technologies, including:

--  advanced materials
--  alternative energy & green technology
--  design engineer technology
--  electronic media technology
--  information & communications technology
--  internet & mobile technology
--  medical device & bio technology
--  nanotechnology & MEMS
--  photovoltaic & solar technology
--  semiconductors & microelectronics
--  software development
--  space & aviation technology
    

Additionally, The Next Silicon Valley takes on the issue of funding and business development, focusing on startups, venture capital and regional investment promotion. Coverage also includes emerging technology markets, global competitiveness, alliances between regional businesses and technology companies/entrepreneurs, science and technology parks, industry clusters and local/regional startups.

"The Next Silicon Valley aspires to foster global innovation and regional entrepreneurship around the world. By exploring and reporting the news, the hottest developments and key regional trends in innovation, business, technology and economic development, we are shaping the future of tomorrow -- around the world," said Wallace. "The website fills a media void in the emerging knowledge-based economy for global innovations and technology developments that are not adequately reported -- and sometimes not at all -- by mainstream print and online media. The Next Silicon Valley meets these challenges by drawing upon its network of regional journalists and global information sources in combination with new and emerging social networking channels like Twitter to gather, filter, and disseminate unique content globally."

"The Next Silicon Valley is a serious site dedicated to news and information about global innovation and the places it's happening and it's bringing global perspective back into an industry that has seen it wither with its declining publications," said Brian Fuller, media guru and Greeley's Ghost blog author, and former editor-in-chief of EE Times.
