About the Area

In Southern California, just over the Hollywood Hills, north of Los Angeles, at the Gateway to the San Fernando Valley (Valley of the Stars) is the dynamic business community of Universal City/North Hollywood and residential communities of North Hollywood & Valley Village. Population 210,000.

For generations, the San Fernando Valley has been the home of legends. Bob Hope, Ron Howard, Gene Autry, Sally Field, Clark Gable, John Wayne, Tom Selleck and countless others have called the Valley, home. Today, we are also known for our corporate stars that have become business legends in their own right. Among those who make their home here are: Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Studios & Music, The Walt Disney Company, Warner Brothers, DreamWorks SKG, NBC, Litton Industries, Boeing-Rocketdyne Propulsion and Power, Countrywide Credit, Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Nestle USA, Nickelodeon Animation Studios, CBS Studio Center, Pinkerton, and Wellpoint Health Networks. Our highly educated workforce, well-developed infrastructure, hospitable climate, business-friendly municipal governments and strategic position along the Pacific Rim have combined to facilitate the establishment of more than 50,000 small businesses. We are encouraged to note that literally thousands of these new businesses in our Valley are innovators in such emerging industries as multi-media, biotechnology and communications.
