Yock talks about the Biotech bay - the other Silicon Valley, and how the products offered are based on the science of genetics. Medtech focuses on instruments, equipments, and is not a trivial market sector, he says. The Bay has titans like J&J, Guidant, and Boston scientific, for example. There is significant start up funding into the Medtech sector. Half to two thirds of venture funding for Medtech goes into Northern California, he adds.
