What makes the Valley a fertile place that it for years has churned out some of the best startups and leading entrepreneurs?

1. Failure is an option



Silicon Valley is well known for its open acceptance of failure as a rite of passage, unlike other geographies where failure is frowned upon and considered a stigma. If an entrepreneur is known to have a failure behind him, there is more chances for a VC to back him in his next venture. Since failure is seen as a sign of maturity and experience, it encourages the entrepreneurs to take bold risks and not allow fear to rule their decisions.
