In recent years, as tech companies have been gradually priced out of Silicon Valley and the surrounding San Jose region, the city of Oakland in California has become a new tech and start-up hub. The culmination of this shifting status has been Uber’s decision to move a major portion of its operations to the city, indicating that Oakland is ready to welcome SMEs and agile start-ups with competitive rates and business-friendly policies.
What’s more, Oakland is perfectly located for ambitious, growing companies. Located just 45 minutes away from Silicon Valley and a mere 20 minutes from the international economic centre of San Francisco, the city offers abundant connectivity. Oakland International Airport and San Francisco International Airport offer links to most of the world, while Los Angeles International Airport is just a few hours away, if more esoteric destinations are required.
With a prestigious location and excellent rates, the Oakland City Center offers a virtual office location and business address from which to get your operation up and running. Alternatively, Marina Village is also well worth a look.
Alongside virtual offices, our business centres in Oakland have bookable meeting rooms, providing hassle free solutions where you pay by the hour for the space you need. Our co-working spaces give companies an affordable way to acquire desk space and collaborate in a prime location for as long as you require. Looking to expand your business and want a dedicated workspace? Regus centres also offer serviced office space to rent.
