KeyMe Comes to San Diego: Where to Find Us
When writing about technology it can be easy to divorce the subject from what we’re really talking about: people. Technology gets developed to improve people’s lives. It also makes them passionate and makes them more productive members of the workforce. Inspiring people to do their best is kind of the magic X factor when it comes to startup culture. Getting enough like minded people to fill a company is impressive. But filling a city with enough talented tech workers to create an entire startup culture? Now, that is a feat.
At KeyMe, we have found that tech-minded people really respond to our cutting-edge features like machine learning, neural net capabilities and our interactive user interface. That’s why we are so excited to introduce our latest kiosk locations in San Diego; a burgeoning tech economy that we are happy to be a part of!
If Silicon Valley immediately came to mind, no one would blame you. Maybe even New York City. These large metropolises are known for their hustle and bustle and position in the business world. But innovative tech doesn’t only come out of the Valley.
San Diego, California is experiencing quite the tech boom lately. It’s home to many different kinds of companies, though it has emerged as a leader in the biotech and mobile technology fields. The shift to being more tech-minded has been a long time coming. What was once mainly a military town (Camp Pendleton isn’t far away) has become a leader in engineering thanks to the strong university system that developed over the course of the twentieth century. The Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California, San Diego was recently ranked as one of the top ten engineering schools in the state.
San Diego experiences no shortage of talented people thanks to universities, the continued presence of the military and the research they do, and the R&D organizations that make up so much of the culture. There are about eighty private and public research institutions in San Diego.
It would be negligent to not also point out a huge advantage San Diego has when it comes to attracting and retaining talented people: the lifestyle. Enjoying sunny, seventy degree days nearly year round is definitely a nice perk. San Diego also enjoys some of the shortest commute times in the area, which goes a long way in keeping people happy and willing to collaborate.
San Diego is also home to the second highest concentration of engineering and science professionals in the United States. This high concentration of qualified professionals draws companies from across the globe to recruit and land their headquarters. Hundreds of companies have gotten over a billion dollars in funding cumulatively from venture capitalists as San Diego tries to position itself as a leader in innovation while the shadow of big brother Silicon Valley looms large. GoPro, Ocean Aero and Hookit are just a few of the cutting-edge technology companies that call this sunny spot home. Check out a full list here.
It’s this environment of needing to be on the cutting edge and innovating to be competitive that makes San Diego a perfect city for KeyMe to grow its presence. San Diego’s reputation for mobile technology innovation is an excellent pairing for KeyMe’s leveraging of smartphones to duplicate keys in San Diego easily via an app. With the expansion of KeyMe kiosks throughout San Diego, people will get to enjoy both the latest and greatest in key duplication technology, as well as some relief when it comes to late night lockouts.
Check out KeyMe at these locations:
