- TCF Declares San Francisco The Unofficial Capital of New Technology!
It is true that Silicon Valley remains the center of where development of a lot of the hardware devices we use are built. However, over the past couple of decades San Francisco, “The City-by-the-Bay” has emerged as “THE PLACE” where social media en=treprenuers are panning gold. For Instance Twitter was birthed in S.F. Other S.F. players are finding talent and ready markets in the city. Hundreds of S.F. companies have “blown-up” from ink and pencil business plans drawn on napkins and then nurtured into successful businesses and appealing sources of investor investments maturing into wealthy money pots. The steadily growing long list of “web 2.0 goldmines” born in S.F. proves this to be true. In fact it is a sure bet that if you walk into almost any hip or trendy cafe or casual restaurant in S.F. you’ll find busy intense small groups of tech/geek types, mapping out future designs and plans for the next potential Facebook or Google, you’ll also notice too eager fleet fingers flying across the keyboards of heavily-stickered laptops. Strangely enough most of this was unplanned. Even the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce has been slow to realize this. Convinced? if you are, and are considering possibly relocating to S.F. to get in the middle of the action. The city is even considering tech tax breaks in an effort to retain fleeting companies discouraged by the high cost og living in S.F. If you have eyes for moving here consider subscribing to the S.F. Business Times, talk to a city native, and spent a week here to get the real feel of The City, and see if you like it. How could you not!
