Beijing Silicon Valley
Beijing Silicon Valley magnify
We met with a consulting and application development firm in Beijing’s Silicon Valley, called the “Upper Ground” or “Middle Gate Village” area of Beijing. I was completely surprised. I have been to other business meetings across Asia, but this section of Beijing looked just like Silicon Valley. The modern buildings were surrounded by groomed parkways and landscaping. The glass and steel exteriors were just like you would find in Palo Alto or Cupertino or Sunnyvale. Inside, the software engineers’ cubicles were personalized with toys, pictures and gadgets, and the conference rooms looked the same. If you didn’t know you were in Beijing, you would swear this is Silicon Valley USA.
