When you think of startup cities, you think of San Francisco. Some people will argue whether or not SF is dead, but the Bay Area will always remain a hotbed for innovation and capital.
It would be impossible for us to name all of the success stories that have come out of SF. The city has built some of the most notable companies of the past 50 years. Stripe, Instacart, Databricks, Chime and Miro are just a few of the newer names that have added themselves to that list.
