Dear Friends:2009 was a rough year. We learned the hard way that Silicon Valley is not immune to the larger forces at work inthe global economic recession. Like other regions, we have lost tens of thousands of jobs, absorbed thousands of home foreclosures, and seen our incomes decline. Despite our many strengths—from talented people to world-classtechnology—we could not insulate ourselves from the larger economic downturn.Now we are at a critical moment. We must face facts and address the vulnerabilities that put our economy andcommunity at risk.This year’s
provides a sobering picture of our current situation and contains critical information we will needto move forward. In addition to the
itself, we present a
Special Analysis
which is a call to action based onthese facts. It suggests Silicon Valley has entered a new era of uncertainty, with a set of vulnerabilities that couldcompromise our long-term prosperity. Our continued ability to import and develop talent, fund innovation, and relyon state government for overall support are seriously in question. We are a region at risk.This is not a time for complacency. At a time when we need to engage more actively in the global economy, the veryfoundations for that engagement are weakening. We’re disinvesting in education and we’re not cultivating talent.Our state is no longer able to make crucial investments in infrastructure. Gridlock in Sacramento has become amajor barrier to our ability to compete abroad and solve problems here at home.Of course we still have many strengths as an innovation economy, and as a vibrant community. Silicon Valleycompetes at a very high level with other advanced regions in the global economy. But we must continue to buildon these strengths if we are to maintain our position in a world that is rapidly rising to challenge us. From the riseof Asian economies to California’s budget meltdown, our future will in many ways depend on how we respond toforces emanating beyond our region.To maintain our customary place in the world economy we must face the facts, challenge our assumptions, andaddress these new realities with the ingenuity and drive that has always been a hallmark of our Valley. Joint Ventureand Silicon Valley Community Foundation are working together to help our region meet these challenges. We hopethis year’s
Special Analysis
will be a catalyst for action.Sincerely,Russell Hancock, Ph.D.Emmett D. Carson, Ph.D.President & Chief Executive Officer CEO & PresidentJoint Venture: Silicon Valley Network Silicon Valley Community Foundation
