Innovation Assets

Berkeley is home to one of the world’s top public universities (UC Berkeley) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, is connected by BART and the Bay Bridge to San Francisco, and is less than an hour from Silicon Valley. Additionally, the city has many connections to other parts of California and global destinations through its rail transportation networks and proximity to two international airports and the Port of Oakland. These rich resources enable entrepreneurs to launch innovative companies, create high-quality jobs and generate technologies with a global impact.
