The East Bay is the eastern region of the San Francisco Bay Area, which comprises Alameda and Contra Costa counties. With a population of approximately 2.8 million, it is the most populous and geographically diverse subregion in the Bay Area. Our largest cities include Oakland, Fremont, Hayward, Richmond, Concord, and Berkeley. Tri-Valley has become a major hub for innovation and entrepreneurship and is among the fastest-growing areas in Northern California. The East Bay’s diverse and family-friendly communities, attractions, and year-round recreation make it the ideal place to live, work and do business.
The Bay Area and beyond draws from East Bay’s highly educated, diverse, and skilled workforce. We are home to UC Berkeley, California State University-East Bay, and over a dozen community colleges, giving employers direct access to abundant talent. Some of our significant companies include Bayer, Clorox, Chevron, Kaiser Permanente, Lam Research, Pixar, Safeway, Workday, Tesla, 10x Genomics, and many more.
