Bonfire Hosts Unforgettable Party on Night One of Upfront Summit


Deb Goldstein


March 9, 2023

Each year, our friends (and neighbors) at Upfront Ventures bring together the brightest founders, investors, and thought leaders from around the country for their annual summit. The line up this year did not disappoint, with speakers including former Vice President Al Gore, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, and NBA Champion Dwayne Wade, covering topics including generative AI, climate change, fundraising, and more. Bonfire Ventures was excited to once again have the pleasure of hosting an unforgettable party as the first night of Upfront Summit 2023 came to a close.

The atmosphere was electric, with lively conversation and connections being made throughout the night. Living up to our name, the ambiance was warm and inviting, making sharing stories feel like a friendly gathering around a campfire. As the party progressed, spicy margaritas flowed and electric violinist, Yennie Lam, added a harmonious touch to the DJ's beats, bringing the night to new heights. Back by popular demand, guests were gifted our signature Bonfire hat as they departed.

The Bonfire Ventures team was thrilled to have had the opportunity to bring together such an amazing group of people and to create an atmosphere that fostered meaningful connections and conversations within the tech and venture community. It was truly a night to remember, and we can't wait to do it again next year.

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors for the evening: Gunderson Dettmer, Aduro Advisors, TriNet, Full Stack Finance, and First Republic Bank.
