When you choose Tech CU, you’re joining a credit union that was founded in Silicon Valley by a group of entrepreneurs and future high tech leaders. The uniqueness of this valley is in our DNA — and we've got the history to prove it.Who we are
It began with a group of forward-thinking employees at Fairchild Camera and Instrument Semiconductor Division (a pioneer in technology innovation) who knew their money could be handled in a better way. Nearly sixty years ago, they formed Tech CU — a credit union solely dedicated to the financial success of its members — and owned by the people it served.
What started with a few thousand dollars and a couple of accounts has evolved into a leader in the Bay Area and one of the 100 largest credit unions in the US. And, no matter how large we have grown, our roots are firmly planted in Silicon Valley. Having had a “front-row seat” to some of the world’s greatest technological advances, we continue to support the entrepreneurial spirit, diverse cultures and unique needs of the high tech industry — reflecting the original founders’ vision.
