Mapping Which Companies to Visit This Week for OpenCoSF

View as Map

This Thursday and Friday, some 136 hotshot companies across San Francisco will be opening their office doors to the general public by participating in OpenCoSF, which is one part conference and one part festival. Tech titans like Google and Adobe and local hotshots like Sidecar and Makeshift Society will be hosting open houses for residents, entrepreneurs, and anyone else who'd like to stop by and see what it's like behind the scenes. While there's over 130 companies to choose from, we've gone through the list with a fine-tooth comb to figure out which offices have the coolest and most hip interiors. Registration is required, so don't assume you can just show up at Google's office on the Embarcadero and take a ride down their slide (yes, there's a slide you can use instead of stairs). After the jump, a map of our favorites.
