Oakland tech industry spilling over from San Francisco

  • Many creative workers and small companies are looking to Oakland for office space.
  • Perks like free lunches and dry cleaning pick-ups are yesterday's news.
  • Flexibility in spaces and leases is important to a new class of office tenants.

Unicorn hub San Francisco can barely contain all the techies that seek to set up shop there. So, a trip across the bay to Oakland is in the cards for many who want the San Francisco vibe– but from a bit of a distance.
