In 2015, Sunset Publishing moved its headquarters to Oakland’s Jack London Square. Many Menlo Park residents have fond memories of the former Sunset Magazine site located at 85 Willow Road. The annual Sunset Open House event and test gardens brought great excitement to many visitors. Although this sentiment will never fade, the City of Menlo Park is happy to welcome our newest resident at 85 Willow Road, fintech Robinhood

Robinhood is one of the newest companies revolutionizing the fintech, financial technology, market place. By offering their customers, an avenue to buy and sell U.S. listed stocks and ETFs with $0 commission, Robinhood seeks to provide access to the financial market to everyone. Robinhood provides users with the ability to invest in the stock market free of charge. Something their competitors do not currently offer.

Rolling out this year, they have plans to release a web-based platform to extend their accessibility. For more information about Robinhood’s story, please visit their website.
