and the interaction of different cultures
Digital Garage has created DG717 Incubation Center in San Francisco, the birthplace of cutting-edge technologies and of many businesses that have grown into leading web services used across the globe, as a hub for information sharing for new technologies and new entrepreneurs, and as a place to provide various resources after starting business in the US.
The concept phrase for this Center is "East meets West," in the hope of becoming a hub for cultural interaction between various nations and peoples. It is to become a modern center where East can meet West once again, based on the history of human development with East-West migrations.
