Just north of Stanford and Palo Alto lies Menlo Park. Two of its first residents, wistful for their hometown of Menlough, Ireland, bestowed the similar-sounding moniker to their newfound home. This quiet city is known for its tree-canopied streets, sprawling parks, and friendly residents.
Menlo Park is the US financial center for venture capital, with some of the world’s most powerful and active venture capitalists established throughout the area. Sand Hill Road, a nationally known Menlo Park thoroughfare, is renowned for its concentration of such companies. These firms’ investments have spawned some of the world’s most recognizable brands, such as Amazon, Citrix, Electronic Arts, Genentech, Google, Facebook, Intuit, Juniper Networks, Sun Microsystems, and Symantec.
