Renaissance Florence was a Better Model for innovation than Silicon Valley is - HBR

From hbr.org

 

Urban planners the world over yearn to replicate the success of Silicon Valley: witness Thames Valley (England) and Silicon Oasis (Dubai), to name just two of these attempts. Invariably, these well-intentioned efforts fail for the simple reason that they’re trying to replicate the wrong model. Silicon Valley is too new, too now, to glean lessons from.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 5, 11:17 AM
