GOOD has posted a recap of the KIVA Birthday celebration from two weeks ago. We have to celebrate our success, and reaching 700+ guests to honor KIVA is definitely one of our largest achievements here at Hub Bay Area!
Hundreds of social enterprise organizations were represented at the event, fostering countless conversations and connections valuable to all attendees. The growing interest and emergence of social enterprise organizations was clear at the Kiva celebration, signaling a bright enterprising future! -Isis Krause, GOOD
Anis Salvesen from PhilanthroPost published a great article on KIVA’s 4th Birthday Party. It summed up the event nicely. What a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of an innovator like KIVA, with a guest list of 700 attendees sharing our passion for creative approaches to social change.
We would like to echo KIVA’s big thank you to all our guests, musicians, and sponsors. Well done! Your generosity is much appreciated.
A huge thanks goes out to photographer Michael Peachey for capturing photos of the hundreds of guests in attendance celebrating KIVA with Hub Bay Area and GOOD.
On November 3rd, KIVA celebrated their 4th Birthday & $100M in loans at Hub Bay Area in Berkeley, CA. Taking up three floors of the David Brower Center, the party was a true celebration of four successful years of lending and microfinance. Holding court in The Hub for the night was Max Schorr of GOOD, Amy Tobin of the David Brower Center, Premal Shah of KIVA, and Alex Michel of Hub Bay Area. The perfect combination of leaders from the social enterprise and nonprofit communities plus great food and music made for an outstanding time. Hopefully you made it up to our Hub Bay Area space in suite 400 to see our dynamic coworking and event space. Please visit our Flickr group photo pool to share any cool shots you have of this outstanding celebration for Kiva, true pioneers in social change.
