Hopkins & Carley’s history reflects the evolution, entrepreneurship and vibrancy of Silicon Valley’s middle market economy. This blog is for and about flourishing businesses and those striving to thrive in the middle market — the powerhouse of the economy, cornerstone of community prosperity, and largest source of jobs in the U.S., and maybe in the world.  What elements define and drive success and value in the middle market? How is middle market prosperity fostered? What can owners and executives of middle market companies do to achieve sustainable success as a business in the middle market? Where can middle market companies find the help and resources to reach their goals?

With this blog, we hope to bring together a community of interest for conversations around these important questions, to collect information that can serve as a resource to middle market companies and their advisors, and shine a spotlight on the middle market business.
