According to Daniel Nenni
Daniel, aren’t we at a different time, where silicon startups don’t even get funding, etc ?
Yes, that is true. What the VCs do not realize is that without semiconductors there would be no Uber, AirBnB, or the other billion dollar tech unicorns that they have poured their money into.
New semiconductor companies will come from small groups of engineers that use personal investments and seed money to start. Many of them will begin as IP companies or services groups. As I mentioned before, thousands of semiconductor professionals will be looking for work due to the industry consolidation. They will either create new companies or go hungry, my opinion.
