25 years – a quarter of a century – may seem like a long time. But to those of us who have focused on the work and challenges of supporting entrepreneurs, time goes by in a flash. That rings true for many people who have been involved with CAMEO; memories of our inception still fresh in their minds. To honor those memories and lay a path for what comes next, CAMEO held its 25th Anniversary Celebration on December 5, 2019 in downtown San Francisco.

Read our recap of the event and check out all the photos. Thanks to the sponsors, guests, and vendors who made it a success.
