撮要

To leverage the powerful innovation ecosystem found in Silicon Valley, Samsung has increasingly reoriented itself away from its Korean roots toward Silicon Valley–based subsidiaries such as the Samsung Strategic Innovation Center (SSIC). Like many other non-US-based technology companies, ranging from Nokia to Huawei, Samsung had long maintained a strong research and development presence in the Silicon Valley. Nonetheless, in recent years, Samsung has taken further steps, more than any other foreign company, aiming to become an authentic Silicon Valley entity. Today, Samsung has aspirations of becoming a top-five employer in the San Francisco Bay Area, building research and development centers in Mountain View and San Jose that are collectively half as large as Apple’s gargantuan new headquarters. The question for Samsung Electronics is how to leverage its existing capabilities in Korea and its new capabilities in Silicon Valley to achieve technological breakthroughs to continue to stay ahead of its Chinese competitors.
