Having doubts about staying in Silicon Valley? Here's how feasible it is for American tech workers to relocate to Europe
Some tech workers may be imagining a life elsewhere for a while like Europe -- a region that's looking to challenge Silicon Valley's control over the tech and startup ecosystem, and had its best year for creating new unicorns in 2019. "What is pretty much universal across Europe is that all its economies want tech companies," he told Business Insider. In 2019, for example, job-matching platform Relocate.me listed eighteen European startups that were looking to hire foreign workers. The current ban on Americans entering the European Union means that growing tech hubs for foreign workers, like Germany and Portugal, will not immediately import new hires from the US. But in the United Kingdom, it's still possible for both US-based startup founders and tech employees to relocate, Jones said.
