Technology entrepreneurs are well-known for high risk tolerance, defying status quo thinking, and ignoring obsolete regulations. With political realities quickly changing the talent landscape on which internet fortunes are built, tech leaders need to do what they do best:  adapt and innovate.

Competitive advantage will still rely on attracting the best, but Investors and leaders also need to think about how to cultivate the skilled talent they need here in the US.  I'm optimistic that Silicon Valley companies will quickly see how a new political environment can still accommodate their business priorities, progressive ethos, and disruptive advantages.  

That will win them a seat at the table while protecting their interests.
