“Tech-savvy businesses and industries will lead to a ‘Rise of the Rest,’ in which places outside of Silicon Valley and Boston will flourish. About 75 percent of all venture capital spent last year poured into three states, New York, California and Massachusetts, but that’s because of ‘laziness’ of investors to find promising innovations elsewhere. There will be a relative change in balance!” – Steve Case
