Situated along the eastern shore of the San Francisco bay, the city of Oakland, California has seen a revitalization of business and cultural districts in the last decade. Also known as Oaktown, Oakland boasts a population of just over 404,000 residents and is the county seat for economically vibrant Alameda County. Oakland is the 8th largest city in the state and connected to San Francisco by the Bay Bridge.

Selected as a 2006 CNN Money magazine Best Place to Live, Oakland relies on its international commerce as the backbone of a growing economy. This global reputation is fostered by Oakland's strong rail, sea, and air shipping networks. Oakland's Community and Economic Development Agency lists over 75 major development projects that have contributed to Oakland's business allure.

Oakland has recently established itself as a major telecommunications and networking terminal in the West. The city's Vision 2000 technology initiative has carried over to the latter half of the decade and created a pro-IT business climate for local and global merchants.
