From Silicon Dragon to Silicon Heartland

Author & CNBC contributor Rebecca A. Fannin is launching her new book Silicon Heartland with a special, invite-only VIP gathering in New York City, Dec. 8.

Guests will receive a signed preview copy of Rebecca's book in advance of the publication date. The book just received a great review from Publishers Weekly

Remote industrial regions in the American Midwest that were nearly forgotten when money & power shifted to Silicon Valley & to China are now being rebooted & reenergized. What has been known as the Rust Belt is gradually developing the shine of a Tech Belt. This former pinnacle of the U.S. economy is making a comeback as Silicon Valley culture spreads well beyond the coasts. This bodes well for the nation's economy & global competitiveness. Based on Rebecca's 150+ interviews & 10,000 road trip miles during Covid -- driving from Flint Michigan to Huntington, West Virginia in her Honda Element -- Silicon Heartland takes readers on an investigative tour that points to the region's turnaround through high-tech innovation, a counter to China's technology drive.

"An indispensable book for founders, investors & change-makers." Jim Breyer, founder & CEO, Breyer Capital

"A book that inspires hope for our future." Congressman Ro Khanna, author of Dignity in a Digital Age

"An insightful look into the rebirth of cities & a region that launched American leadership in the global economy. Dan Schwartz, past publisher, Asian Venture Capital Journal, & author, The Future of Finance"

Only Rebecca Fannin, with her venture background, China experience, & heartland roots, could uncover the amazing tech revolution occurring in the middle of America. David Kaufman, director of global strategies, Nixon Peabody

Also of note: Rebecca is a Heartlander herself, from southeastern Ohio, just 30 miles from the new Intel semiconductor site. For more info, see
