Six Emeryville Companies crack SFBT List of Top-25 ‘Inner East Bay’ Tech Employers

1 min read

The SF Business Times released its list of the top 25 “Inner” East Bay Tech Companies ranked by the number of employees. Emeryville claimed six of the spots including the number one and four of the top ten.

The list included East Bay companies in Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda and stretches as far north as Richmond.

Our 1.2 square mile city has historically “punched above our weight” and held disproportionate business clout for our small size. Emeryville also holds significant business positions in Biotech as well as the food & beverage industry.

Businesses pay a significant portion of the taxes that account for our city’s revenue that pays for services like Police, Fire, Administration & Public Works. These revenues also help keep taxes lower for residents. More information our city’s budget can be read on the city’s website.
