To complete this task, we have first examined the 2016 Fortune 1000 list. While the 2016 list can be filtered according to state, it does not specify whether the companies are headquartered in Northern California or not. Thus, after narrowing the number of companies from 1,000 to 108 companies in California, we have then examined the 108 companies individually to ascertain whether the cities in which they are headquartered are cities within Northern California. We located the cities in the 2016 list using the exhaustive "List of Northern California Cities by County". From the 108 companies, we then narrowed this number down to 64 companies. These 64 companies are all headquartered in Northen California. To validate these findings, we looked at this map to ascertain that all 64 companies were situated no farther south than San Luis Obispo. The three companies which did not make it onto the 2017 Fortune 1000 list are SanDisk Corporation, LinkedIn Corporation, and Restoration Hardware Holdings.
