Transition Silicon Valley is envisioned to be an incubator/umbrella organization for Transition groups within Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley is too large to be effectively organized by one Transition group.   Hence it's likely there will be several Transition Initiatives in the area. It is likely that a regional Transition group will be of assistance to those local groups. At the moment this was written the state of Transition Initiatives in Silicon Valley is at their earliest stage.

Silicon Valley has many existing groups who have purposes similar to Transition. We want to utilize previously done research, and work with existing groups that are already implementing pieces of the Transition model. We want to create a map of Silicon Valley resources useful for Transition so that they are available to everyone.
