Want To Work In Wireless? Move To California

from the the-wireless-state dept

With all the talk about wireless companies lately, I had noticed that there wasn’t a specific geographic location that people often considered the “home” of wireless. A new study, though, says that California has (by far) the largest number of wireless related companies, follwed by Texas. Southern California (LA/San Diego) have the most wireless companies by region, but Northern California (San Francisco Bay Area) has raised the most money for its wireless companies.

Re: No Subject Given

I realize this is a troll… but, California doesn’t lead all states in the number of companies in all industries. Which is, of course, what your post is implying.

There was no reason to believe that California had to be the leading state in terms of wireless companies. This study is interesting because it gives some numbers to support this.

Yeah, but California is the tech hub of the country. Hands down. Not even close. So it’s incredibly obvious that Calif. could have the most wireless companies. It’s like saying, Texas has the most oil companies. Or Kansas has the most farms. Patently obvious stuff here. zzzzzzzzzzzz

Re: Re: Re:2 No Subject Given

What I read there is that a migration has been taking place. Sort of a wireless black hole that sucks in companies due to the talent mass which increases the talent mass which sucks in more companies.
Our company is pure wireless/fiber optic infrastructure and few of our customers are in California. We don’t even have a salesman based there (Seattle is closest). Again, we deal with building the networks (towers, antenna, shelters, etc).
I wonder what percentage of the total is attributable to California import companies. No actual manufacturing or engineering. Just purchasing and sales.
