Fremont City is named in honor of John C. Frémont, the first Republican presidential candidate in history. During the Western expansion era, Frémont led expeditions to explore and map California, greatly contributing to the development of the San Francisco Bay area. Today, Fremont is a hub for startup companies in the United States, surpassing San Jose, the Capital of Silicon Valley, by twice the number of startups. Apple's first headquarters and Tesla's first factory are both located in Fremont. Many tech giants, such as Lam Research and Synnex Technology International, have also established their presence in Fermont City.
