It is said that “you can’t get to where you are going unless you know where you’ve been.” In our case, 2016 was full of ambitious and rewarding journeys. So, in the spirit of holiday reflections, we’re closing out the year out with our “Top 10” reasons to break out the eggnog.

  1. The City celebrated the completion of Capitol Avenue – the main street in our new downtown.
  2. Fremont participated in the 1st Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Survey and Summit
  3. A new Fremont Shopping and Dining Guide was released.
  4. ReCast City engaged our real estate community and provided recommendations to nurture the Maker Movement in Fremont.
  5. Lennar broke ground on their 100+ acre project in Warm Springs.
  6. Ecole 42, a French coding university, chose Fremont for its U.S. location.
  7. The City approved a microgrid demonstration project with Fremont-based Gridscape Solutions.
  8. Our BioMedical Manufacturing Infographic made a splash at BIO International.
  9. Fremont’s StartupGrind chapter celebrated its one year anniversary.

As we become more urban and strive to interpret the business issues affecting our innovation economy, we want to share with you our observations, insights, photos, arguments, agreements, inspirations and CEO interviews – and here on our blog is exactly where we plan to do this.
