Stanford University The origin of Silicon Valley

In 1960s, when. The San Francisco Bay Area The UC Berkeley (UC Berkeley) in the academic and student movement on both famous occasion, Stanford University is still unknown to the public. Because it is used to train the horse farm out as the elite school campus plus when in American eyes or desolate occlusion of the Far West, it was therefore also known as "the farm of Stanford University".

Is after the 70s incident, it is thanks to the Standford area, more than eight thousand acres of the school area, the available space is very large, so Terman Dean of College of Engineering in 1959 (Frederick Terman) proposed an idea - this is the turning point of the Stanford University: one thousand acres at extremely low, only symbolic rent, long-term rent to businesses or alumni to the establishment of a company, and then by their work with schools to provide internship opportunities for students and various research projects. Standford became the first American University established industrial park in the campus. Due to the huge gains out of land for this proposal, Standford put herself in front of in the United States: "enterprises in the industrial park a opening soon beyond Standford can provide the scope of the land, the development of outward expansion, the formation of the United States of California science and technology elite, tip" silicon valley (Silicon Valley, also translated as "valley). Stanford University was surrounded and enterprise technology group, and high-tech, and more business and pragmatic and pioneering spirit of the typical "spirit of the United States to establish close contact. With the rise of the west coast of the United States "High-tech Zone, the computer company, including the" century darling" Microsoft Companies in this line is becoming more and more of the pitch camp, Stanford University and Stanford University is important, the core of the Silicon Valley, is the world's science and technology innovation center.
