A Reflection on 2015 and the Rizk Ventures Holiday Party

Linda RizkWe at Rizk Ventures were happy to host our 2015 holiday party this past weekend to celebrate another amazing year of business, family, and friendship. This year the party was held on the Terrace of the wonderful Gramercy Park Hotel, a beautifully decorated space in the heart of Gramercy with a spectacular view of the surrounding New York City skyline. The guests included our various Rizk Ventures teams, colleagues, and great friends and included partners from our two newest ventures, Workspace Property Trust and Rizk Ventures Healthcare Analytics. The night featured catered food and drinks, a live DJ, a magician, speeches and toasts by Tom, me, and our daughter Alex, and a performance from a very special musical guest.

We were honored to have Wyclef Jean, the Grammy, Billboard, Golden Globe, and MTV Video Music Award-winner, as the night’s primary entertainment. Wyclef was an absolute treat to be around and heavily contributed to the high-energy and joyous atmosphere of the party. He performed mostly his hit music, but included a special verse thanking myself and the rest of the CHTCS team for our efforts to help eradicate human trafficking and modern slavery, as well as the veterans in attendance.

On behalf of the entire Rizk Ventures team, I would like to extend a big thank you to our friends and families who came and those who were unable to make it but are just as important in our lives. We would never be able to join in celebrations like this without the hard work and dedication put in by each and every one of our Rizk Venture’s employees and colleagues. We wish everyone a very merry holiday season and a happy New year! We can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for us all!
