Cultivating start-ups in Silicon Valley

Many have tried, no one has quite succeeded in creating an equivalent tech ecosystem equivalent to that in silicon valley.

Saeed Amidi was landlord to Logitech, Paypal and Google, when they had five employees.

He explained to the BBC's Jonny Dymond how he took a stake in many of his tenants companies and has now set up a tech home for the next generation of Zuckerbergs.

"We had a few very exciting neighbours and tenants," he added.

"Silicon Valley is a great place to network... and we have tried to exaggerate that."
