However, here's a little tongue-in-cheek way of analyzing for the odds.
Now, if you are an engineer with all the right personal ingredients to create a startup, you'd do well to consider the following facts:
- The odds of someone's winning MEGA Millions jackpot, which reached recently as high as $640 million, is 1 in 176 million, according to California Lottery web site.
- The odds of someone's winning the smaller SuperLotto Plus jackpot is 1 in 41 million, also according to California Lottery web site.
- The San Francisco Bay Area, of which Silicon Valley is a part, would rank first [in the United States] with 387,000 high-tech jobs.
