In 2000 Tae Hea, Alex, Sanjay, Dick and myself founded Storm Ventures. We have had many struggles and many successes. This past June we celebrated our 15 year anniversary along with our Annual Meeting.
We hosted our casino themed event at The Village in San Francisco, with over 300 friends and colleagues in attendance. We decided early on we didn’t want it to just be about Storm, but about all of the people who have helped and supported us throughout the years. We would not be where we are today without all the support of our limited partners, the entrepreneurs, our venture colleagues and so many more in our community.
It was also important to us to give back to our community. We partnered with Project Homeless Connect in San Francisco and donated all of the proceeds from the casino games to them. PHC’s mission is to “connect the most vulnerable San Franciscans to vital resources throughout the city. They link participants to difficult-to-obtain services including medical, dental and vision care, and employment assistance.” They do amazing work.
Here are some photos from the event. You can find all of them here.
As we embark on year 16 we are excited for the next chapter and strive to continue to be your trusted advisor. Thank you for all your support and help. We are grateful to have such an incredible group of people to work with on a daily basis.
And especially thank you to our families (that is my wife Julie in the picture at top) who have been with us through the whole struggle.
