We have so many start ups and established companies throughout the bay area that, for the most part, go pretty unrecognized for their impact to both our community and the tech space in general. We may not be Silicon Valley, but do we really want to be? In certain respects, mainly funding and talent pools, sure it would be great.

But!

We have our share of companies doing awesome things and more and more funding options are entering our space. Here are some great companies making their marks on the national/international education system.
