Las Vegas Could Become The Next Silicon Valley
Hi Tech leaders are saying Las Vegas could become the next Silicon valley. Las Vegas offers low cost of real estate and a trained qualified work force which is key to Hi Tech start ups success since start up costs traditionally have been high. In addition low risk of natural disaster is important.
The Valley already houses such tech companies as NetEffect, a full service information technology company, Cobalt Data Center, and Switch , which houses two data centers in Las Vegas where it provides security, power and cooling, for thousands of racks of servers owned and operated by its clients, which include eBay, Zappos and the U.S, government. Tony Hsieh of Zappos is also encouraging Hi Tech start ups in Las Vegas with his Downtown project which includes helping to fund tech start ups.
