welcome to yelp. i'm excited to have you here at our new headquarters. as you know yelp has lived within the same radius. we've moved a short distance away and to keep our headquarters in san francisco was a conscious one. san francisco was a key player in the yemz story. we realized that yelp might work in cities around the world with yelp in 23 criteria's we need a little bit more desk space. yelp has 17 hundred employees 8 hundred in sf. we're committed to growing the local economy and maintaining a
strong connection to our san francisco lines. when looking for a new headquarters it was location, location, location. we needed somewhere to provide easy access to lots of local businesses and restaurants and remain convenient for mass transit riders and bike riders a lot of our employees ride bikes. combrem is pack at about local plays and celebrate the distinct active and unique. we want to have this into a more than workplace. talking of resident at the 130

this whole faith is built on technology and really save in community because community is what yelp is all about. yelps success is living proof that american business doesn't want just service a small community but this whole community. from the beginning this torrid company acknowledged that this can be a good model of bits. and certainly there's no befrt place to test this model but in san francisco. consider where we are today 140 new montgomery street stand for
innovation. the first sky skrarpt to be in san francisco. it was then the pacific telephone company. i've been using caving stone as means of communication but that was the innovation of the day. that was here in 1929 that, sir winston churchill made a telephone call for his 21st wedding anniversary he said why say the age of migraines it past it's just the beginning to today, we mark a new beginning it's called the monument for talk it's called yelp. today, we have the opportunity to celebrate the now global
company community community community how many communities jeremy. while millions of companies understand how yelp can help to change minds fewer know how dedicated this is to helping nonprofits doing the same they're committed to helping leader to find czar grant award and a having champions within the company to open the doors of opportunities pr i congratulate you it's a small amount of money to help incurs who are striving to build better community.
826 val say thank you for helping children to learn more skills. and that's what communication is all about. and the initiative to expand their business. it's all connected to communication and empowerment. i take it something is going to happen with bell, pack bell jeremy said they have their yellow pages and we have yelp. we affirm our deaths for the economic engine it drives the american dream so thank you yelp
for your leadership this tliefrz on the power of community. thank you for your imperial spirit and a your commitment to the community. thank you congratulations to yelp (clapping.) don't use it as a model but (laughter) you really this is such a passion for the mayor. and i know what this means to many this building yelp coming here for him everyday strives to make san francisco the engine of economic growth of community respect of giving opportunity to so many people. i know this is a special program
and he wanted to decade yelp to the san francisco community >> thank you (clapping.) well, that's kind of neat to have it yielded by the leader. i am, of course, very glad to be here at yelp this is my second invest to this site. i know that erica having something in common being from berkley. it's great to see people coming together after law but it's good to see maybe there's life for me. but i'm happy to be here and join nancy pelosi and congratulating he yemen they're new home. yelp is special they're starting
here and staying here that i i love coming here it is now 8 hundred the numbers changed. i visited a few weeks we looked at the building restroom for a thousand. i want to join leader pelosi it is a happy day. i love to see companies succeed and the collaborating and sharing ideas this is what yelp has done. and then to do something special in the what happened in san francisco because companies that are here and start here they follow in the tradition like the charles swabbings and the fisher's and the hell man's they
discover the resources and want others to grow with them. that's why to recognize 3 outstanding nonprofits you've columbian but even if company like yelp now, it's yelp and yelp foundation. i love that because i got it, it's sales force and sales force foundation the technology companies are taking up that social responsibility like no others and i love seeing that because that's been the values of san franciscans. we've shared in our success and as we present more companies whether their along market street or monday night grorm we have 1 thousand companies in san francisco plus.
think about how many foundations this represents >> we all know the understanding is becoming clear innovation is not about the temple it's about a way of thinking. it suggests that community collaboration, building of that community, sharing of ideas is really a spirit. i've been very happy to collaborator collaborate with yelp and looufrt has been with us a couple of times we have a relationship that's not just in the city. i'm happy to bring yelp with me and present them to other mayors. we get to not only brag but to
announce we're solving things that we're not in the drudgery of retention reform and run away accounts but we can solve them in partnership with the private sector. we took this one example data that no one looks altered from restaurants and we discovered there's no eyes on that so we matched that up with the real eyes that are at yelp and made that connection so when you go to let yelp website i can see the relationship in government and we announced that and other cities asked how we have more people using that process. that's one of dozens of example
whether it's in transportation finding parking spaces and ride sharing to function more efficient. this partnership goes beyond it and you have made it exist. i'm interested in seeing the other donation you're making to consumer free speech and thank you yelp for being here i want to call up jeremy and a nancy pelosi it's about time that on the occasion of establishing you're wonderful headquarters and i'll watch the demonstrate you're wonderful services this is today yelp day colleagues,
