Folsom, Calif.
Folsom, Calif.
Folsom's tech industry was kickstarted by the arrival of Intel in 1984. These days, the Intel research and design campus is the largest private employer in the city and has inspired a number of spinoffs.

The relatively low cost of real estate helps draw techies away from San Francisco and L.A. and into this comfortable suburb of Sacramento. Startups in Folsom are developing technologies ranging from hydrogen fuel cells to wireless communication devices. Funding is available from local tech-investment groups such as Velocity Venture Capital and the Sacramento Angels.
