Wondering if your California business needs a local phone number? Here are some benefits to keeping it local with a virtual business phone number.

A local area code increases trust

A California phone number reassures customers and clients that you’re from the Golden State and you have a real, local presence — and in Cali, there are a lot of local areas to build a presence in. Having a local business phone makes it easier for residents to call you and know when you’re on the clock. It also makes your number look familiar so your Californian customers are more likely to answer.

Are you looking for virtual phone numbers in multiple cities? OpenPhone lets you add unlimited numbers from multiple cities around North America and Canada, including toll-free numbers. You can use them all on a single device; no new equipment is necessary.

Use your California phone number anywhere

California’s a big state, but you don’t have to be in SoCal to call there. You can call Long Beach from the Napa Valley or San Jose from Santa Cruz. Even better, you don’t have to stay in-state or even in the US to use your California phone number. Commute to clients, travel across the country, hire a remote team, or run an international business with OpenPhone. Your phone calls work from any internet connection and show up as a California area code. That makes it easy to stay connected and appear local.

Share your phone number with a team

Share your OpenPhone number with everyone on your team. You can place and receive calls from the same California number simultaneously, keeping on top of business calls with the power of the entire team. OpenPhone lets you add and restrict users as well. When it’s time to give everyone their own numbers, it’s just as simple to provide employees their own direct lines instead of your main business line.

Advanced features make your business professional

OpenPhone has all the key features of a modern business phone system, like phone menus, call recording, caller ID, and call forwarding, without the bulky infrastructure. What used to involve a PBX exchange is now easy with a virtual platform, so you can run your business efficiently. OpenPhone’s modern phone solution helps your business look as professional to your customers as the local companies they already know.

Why your business needs a California phone number

California is the home of research titans, so it’s no wonder industrial powerhouses include life sciences and tech. From Stanford to Berkeley and the University of California at San Francisco, the Bay Area in particular benefits from a strong science ecosystem, giving rise to thousands of startups in environmental sciences and cleantech, pharmaceutical technology, genetics, and software.

Its biotech industry attracts the most venture capital investment in the country — over $4 billion. With startups focused on clinical trials to launch products in fields like gene therapy, allergy desensitization, and infectious disease, the Golden State leads the nation in being able to harness the know-how to both develop and market new biotech.

Silicon Valley itself got its start from Stanford engineers when it pioneered computer processor chips out of — you guessed it — silicon. It’s since become famous for launching companies from Apple to Google and Tesla. Not bad company to keep.

Some California-based accelerators and incubators to get you there include:

    • Y Combinator - One of the best-known incubators on earth, Y Combinator has been welcoming cohorts since 2005, offering investment for company equity. Its three-month residential program has many successful graduates, including OpenPhone.
    • 500 Startups - 500 Startups’ growth and scaling programs offer seed funding, support, mentorship, and funds in exchange for equity. Their portfolio is full of unicorns.
    • Boost VC Accelerator - Working on time travel? Boost is for you. This accelerator offers investment for equity in the realm of “sci-fi” companies in crypto, virtual reality, space, robotics, biotech, and yep, time travel. Their alumni have gone on to raise billions.
    • Pioneer - Want to play a game to apply for a spot in your pre-seed accelerator? Get on the leaderboard, and find yourself in a two-month remote accelerator with mentoring, education, a Silicon Valley in-person retreat, and funding opportunities.

There are too many California incubators to list. Entrepreneurs in this large ecosystem should look into not only these top names but industry or city-specific resources for support.
