Silicon Valley is the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California in the United States. The region is home to many of the world's largest technology corporations as well as thousands of small innovative startups. It continues to be the leading hub for high-tech innovation and development, accounting for one-third of all of the venture capital investment in the United States. Today, Silicon Valley continues to maintain its status as one of the top research and development centers in the world.

ISID's San Francisco office was formed to strengthen ties with Silicon Valley-based startup companies and venture capital firms. ISID seeks to leverage its extensive Asian network of Dentsu Group to create new opportunities for itself and American-based startups. At this office, ISID engages in strategic research and business development, helping to incubate new technologies from Silicon Valley so they can be commercially deployed and sold in Japan and Asia.

The San Francisco office is an important member of the global ISID network, working closely with sister ISID offices in New York, Tokyo, Shanghai, and other locations.
