India’s Contribution To Silicon Valley



Indians have founded 33.2% of Silicon Valley’s immigrant-founded startups — more than immigrants from any other ten countries combined have, including China, the UK, Canada, Germany, Israel, and Russia.

From 1995 to 2005, immigrants founded 52% of Silicon Valley startups, and 25% of startups in the US. They contributed to 72% of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) patents filed by Qualcomm, 65% of those by Merck, 64% of General Electric, and 60% of Cisco Systems. Indians also co-author 13.7% of America’s global patents.

  1. The Indians I know in the US seem to be extremely successful. Most are doctors or lawyers. And there are a bunch that are entrepreneurs. Pretty amazing! I guess they are used to working hard to make a decent living in India, and they keep up the hard work here in the US (even though life here is pretty easy and comfortable middle class living doesn’t take a bunch of work).
