Global 1000 companies from around the world are leveraging innovation via the Silicon Valley in a wide range of ways. For some, the Valley has become an “open innovation” hub for companies ranging from SAP, Microsoft, Walmart, Samsung, Comcast, Ford and GM. Others are spurring corporate innovation via strategic partnerships, investments, etc.
