About the City of San Jose
San José, the dynamic “Capital of Silicon Valley,” is home to almost one million residents making it the third largest city in California and 10th largest in the U.S. San José is recognized as the safest and best-managed large municipality in the nation. The City’s proximity to outstanding educational institutions has been a primary factor in fostering an environment in which technology has flourished. San José and the Silicon Valley are often thought of as synonymous with the technology industry, yet the City’s business profile is quite diverse with the presence of professional service, retail, commercial and industrial businesses.

Cultural and ethnic diversity are a hallmark of San José, a city in which more than 56 different languages are spoken. Those who live and work in San José enjoy world class attractions, cultural and performing arts, sports and recreation activities, wineries, and year round festivals and celebrations. San José encompasses 177 square miles at the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay.
