region where innovative thinking and creativity flourish,
companies here are continually expanding the boundaries
of their fields, generating new discoveries, new products-indeed
whole new industries-at a pace unmatched anywhere else.
The Bay Area's knowledge-based economy is the most productive
in the world. It's the global leader in computers, telecommunications,
bioscience, multimedia, and environmental technology. It's
first in productivity in retail and wholesale trade and
business services; second in banking and finance. The Bay
Area leads the nation in patents granted and in commercial
Internet domains. It has the highest percentage of fastest-growing
small businesses. And this is the region that attracts
35% of the nation's invested venture capital.

business to the Greater Sacramento Area, you'll find a lifestyle
that'll really move your employees. Located halfway between
San Francisco and Lake Tahoe with the Napa region nearby,

hiking, whitewater rafting, bicycling and snow skiing at
Lake Tahoe. The weather supports this lifestyle, being comfortably
mild with moderate rainfall in winter, virtually none in
summer, and a moderate temperature range year-round. Sacramento
has a rich array of museums, cultural activities and recreational
opportunities. The sports minded aren't left out; the NBA
Kings and WNBA Monarchs provide exciting basketball action,
the Sacramento Knights add soccer and the Sacramento River
Cats add Triple-A baseball to the mix.
