Mayor announces arrival of social network company from Utah 

Aside from homelessness, Mayor Gavin Newsom’s other favorite topic is business — new business that is.

The mayor on Tuesday announced that, a social network company connecting high school and college students with educational and scholarship opportunities, has moved their headquarters from Utah to San Francisco.

According to the Mayor’s Office, Zinch is joining the growing trend of new tech businesses moving to San Francisco to take advantage of The City’s creative work force as well as its geographic and cultural proximity to China, which is the second-largest supplier of foreign students to the U.S., after India.

And not to brag, but  … Newsom pointed out that San Francisco’s strong relationship with China, particularly through ChinaSF, “offers companies access to the fastest-growing market in the world.”

“There is no better place than San Francisco for a company like Zinch,” Newsom said. “The unbeatable combination of leading intellect, design and creativity give a critical edge to our digital and new media companies.
