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.

Funding is available from local tech-investment groups such as Velocity Venture Capital and the Sacramento Angels.
