Global Innovation Hub
UC Davis’ prime location on the thriving corridor linking Sacramento, the state capital, and the San Francisco Bay Area, the world’s unrivaled innovation hub, creates endless opportunities.

You’ll have quick access to established Fortune 500 firms, the global technology industry, Pacific Rim trade, new start-ups, and a financial ecosystem of venture capital and international banking. Ten of the Fortune 100 are headquartered in Northern California, including iconic tech companies Apple and Hewlett-Packard, energy giant Chevron and banking leader Wells Fargo.

You’ll benefit from our connections and networks in Silicon Valley, the hotbed for high-tech, web pioneers and new venture funding—and in the Sacramento region, where progressive energy and climate change policy is rippling well beyond the world’s ninth-largest economy and home to one of the nation’s top clean tech hubs.

UC Davis research, expertise and entrepreneurship programs, combined with the region’s forces of innovation and finance, are powering a clean tech business cluster poised to accelerate economic development well into the future.
