SFAsia (an initiative of GlobalSF) is a not-for-profit organization. We are the international economic development arm of the City of San Francisco's Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) focused on Asia (outside of China). We also partner with the San Francisco Small Business Development Center (SBDC).
Our duties include facilitating bilateral trade between the San Francisco Bay Area and primarily Asian countries. We aspire ourselves to create a welcoming environment for all established Asian companies to locate, invest, and grow in the San Francisco Bay Area. We also help domestic companies expand in Asia as well. In short, SFAsia collectively brings together critical parties in the public and private sectors to spur economic growth, create jobs, innovation, entrepreneurship, inclusion, and to build companies of the future. Though our mission and goals far exceed our expectations.
Created as a public-private partnership with the City of San Francisco's Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), GlobalSF is highly dedicated to paving the way for global companies to locate, invest, and grow in the San Francisco city, while simultaneously helping locally-based companies expand into global international markets.
