08 August 2014

Crete is one of the beautiful places in the world and is perfect for those searching for a relaxing stay. Many people are already aware that the island has beautiful scenery and a great way of life; however, some more surprising news is the fact that Google's Creative Lab director, Steve Vranakis, has said that the island has enormous potential to be a new Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley is the nickname given to the San Francisco Bay area which has a large presence of technological company headquarters, some of which belong to those of Fortune 1000 companies as well as a number of start-ups. Some of the most successful companies in the world are based here, including Facebook, Google and eBay.

Crete's scientific research institutes have set some exciting objectives for the next six years, hoping that the country's innovation, research and entrepreneurship can contribute to the area's development and also create new jobs.

Obviously with the possibility of increasing industry in Crete, it's no wonder that the beautiful island is becoming more and more in demand, not only from businesses wishing to relocate their headquarters but also by home owners.
