Zevenbergen Capital was a proud Leadership Partner of Seattle Pacific University’s (SPU) 21st annual Downtown Business Breakfast.  In addition to attending the event, ZCI had the privilege of hosting team members of the SPU Student Investment Fund. 

The event gathered more than 1,000 business and community leaders to hear guest speaker Nicholas Kristof.  Mr. Kristof is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and a steadfast advocate for human rights around the world.  Kristof believes that “you don't have to solve the problems of the world, but find a bucket that you care about, that you believe in, and add a few drops to it, and that could be transformative to the people you help.”  He implored us to do our part (no matter how big or small) to extend opportunities to those in need.  We found his remarks inspirational, and based on the applause, we were not alone.
