The USPTO's Silicon Valley Regional Office (SVRO) is located in the Wing Building of San Jose City Hall. This landmark building, built in 2005, reflects the city's stature in the valley and stands as a symbol of the area's cultural roots and technological savvy. The West Coast regional office serves California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii. Opened in October 2015, our goal is to promote innovation and stimulate the economy by connecting entrepreneurs to government resources, supporting students and teachers through our STEM education programs, gathering feedback from regional stakeholders, and recruiting diverse talent from the region.
