The 2022 Silicon Valley Index
Joint Venture CEO Russell Hancock summarized the major findings from the 2022 Silicon Valley Index at the annual State of the Valley conference held at Stanford University February 18. The report, produced by Joint Venture's Institute for Regional Studies, shows that an incongruous set of contradictions are still a common theme in Silicon Valley. Employment rebounded to pre-pandemic numbers and tech jobs went up 4%. VC hit new records, start-ups were brisk, and there were more IPOs than in any other year this century. Yet, health and wealth disparities were stratified by race and ethnicity. “Silicon Valley is showcasing our fabled dynamism but also exposing a whopping set of fallibilities,” said Hancock.
Joint Venture’s 2022 State of the Valley conference was held on February 18 as a hybrid event. You can view all the available sessions on our YouTube channel.
