Noyce's leadership of Intel -- six years as president, five as board chair, and nine as a director -- helped create a company that was roughly twice as profitable as its competitors and that today stands as the largest producer of semiconductor chips in the world.
But Noyce believed "big is bad" -- or if not downright bad, at least not as much fun as small companies in which "everyone works much harder and cooperates more." When he left daily management at Intel in 1975, he turned his attention to the next generation of high-tech entrepreneurs.

Robert Noyce's successful development of the integrated circuit in 1959 paved the way for the microelectronic industry's meteoric rise in Silicon Valley.
Noyce first came to the region in 1957 hoping to work under William Shockley, co-inventor of the transistor, another milestone in microelectronics.
While Shockley hired Noyce to work on his "Ph.D. production line", their relations proved rocky and by 1958 Noyce and seven others left Shockley to form Fairchild Semiconductor.
