Business in Santa Clara

 

Santa Clara is at the center of Silicon Valley, the world’s technology center. Over the years, Silicon Valley has become a hotbed of innovation and commerce. Santa Clara saw its greatest change after World War II when the Cold War era began. In response to the Cold War, new defense-related industries started up in the valley. Manufacturing radio, radar, missiles and electric circuits took over agriculture as the primary industry in the area. Stanford University became a hub for science and technology inventions. The adoption of technology in corporate products and services accelerated the transformation of Santa Clara from farming center to a technology leader.

Santa Clara also experienced a housing boom after World War II when veterans and their families came for job opportunities in the defense industry. Land was affordable and before long agricultural tracts were soon converted by the City into single family ranch style homes. The population grew from 6,650 residents in 1940 to 58,850 in 1960. By its Sesquicentennial in 2002, Santa Clara had grown to a population of 104,300.
