Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and the Bay Area are home to more tech companies than anywhere else in the world. How did this California region become such a dominant tech hub? New start-ups launch in Silicon Valley every year and the region is home to some of the world’s most valuable companies including Apple, Alphabet, Tesla, Facebook, and Uber. Silicon Valley and the Bay Area began as a hub for radio and communications technology. In the 1930s, HP ushered in a new age and historians consider the HP Garage to be the birthplace of Silicon Valley. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak launched Apple in 1976, and when Jobs returned to the company in 1997 he oversaw the creation of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. In 1997, Sergey Brin and Larry Page registered and incorporated the company one year later. Thanks to $100,000 in funding from angel investor Andy Bechtolsheim, Brin and Page turned Google into the world’s fifth most valuable company and made themselves incredibly rich. In the 2010s Elon Musk shaped Tesla into the world’s leading EV manufacturer. It wasn’t just EVs that turned Tesla into a tech giant. The company unveiled the Powerwall in 2015 and opened Giga Factory 1 in 2016. Here’s an animated timeline of the most important achievements in Silicon Valley History.
