During this exciting period of growth here in Silicon Valley, a lot of startups have been coming up with creative ways to find exciting and affordable office space. Some companies are working with the City government to earn certain strategic tax breaks—it’s a great way to deepen a company’s relationship with San Francisco, while helping initiate neighborhood improvement projects. Eventbrite is excited to announce that we, too, are working with the City of San Francisco on a special real estate relationship. Starting next quarter, Eventbrite will be moving from our offices in SoMA to historic Alcatraz Island. We think our company deserves a grand space, and we love the idea of teaming up with the City to improve morale in a part of town that has grown depressed.

We’ll be sure to update you with photos of the move, and our new office once we’re settled in. Eventbrite will be offering a free ferry service to all employees. And we’re psyched about our new company uniforms…of course they’ll be orange!
