Few questions are as polarizing as whether tech founders should themselves move or move their startup to Silicon Valley. On one side, you have staunch advocates arguing that no other place has such access to capital and talent. On the other side, opponents insist that founders should stay where they are. We’re here to tell you that both sides are full of hot air. The answer is much more nuanced.

In this episode of Startup Basics, Sergio and Kimmy discuss how Silicon Valley and rising tech hubs compare on factors such as inspiration, knowledge, access to capital, talent, and customers. We’ll give you some details to consider and let you make up your own mind.
