Sand Hill Road

Sand Hill Road is a road in Menlo Park, California, notable for the concentration of venture capital companies there. Its significance in that area of business in the United States may be compared to that of Wall Street in the stock market. The location is advantageous in part for its easy access to Stanford University and Silicon Valley. For several years during the Dotcom boom of the late 1990s, commercial real-estate on Sand Hill Road was more expensive than anywhere else in the US.
