SiFive Looks To Foster Worldwide Network Of RISC-V Startups | Peter Clarke, EE News Embedded

SiFive Inc. (San Francisco, Calif.) has created a global network of nine startup companies to help support design wins for the RISC-V instruction set architecture.
It is pretty easy to see what SemiFive, StarFive and LeapFive all have in common with SiFive but as SiFive CEO Naveed Sherwani explained on Linkedin they are just three of a set of nine companies around the world affiliated to SiFive and all started by ex-employees of SiFive with the help of SiFive.
Sherwani estimates that more than $1 billion has now been invested in RISC-V focused startups around the world with the largest share of that being in China.
