Live Work Oakland is a resource for building community around tech, business innovation and placemaking/liveable cities in Oakland, CA. This is the guide that tells you who’s here, what they are doing, and where they are going–for work, fun, networking and more.

Oakland has the foundational components for a strong “tech community”: four local Chambers of Commerce, multiple business networking organizations, an engaged City of Oakland economic development group, and numerous programs and meet-ups to promote civic tech, open government, digital equity and inclusion, mobile development, and start-up funding among other elements.  To help grow that ecosystem, we welcome partner organizations as affiliates and contributors, local businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs as partners, and interested folks as members.
