It’s a new decade! That brings new opportunities and challenges for us all. We’re excited — especially because 2020 marks iVenture’s 20th decade in business. 

 The big 2-0 is October 1st and we’ll be counting down throughout the year. But before we look forward, let’s reflect on the past. 2019 was a year of change, innovation and teamwork. Please join us as we remember iVenture 2019.


Team Highlights

Culture is our number one priority. You can read all about it here. We’ve learned that satisfied employees make satisfied clients. By hosting events, we bond over more than work. Our friendships create healthy teams which deliver better results.

2019 had more events and activities than ever. From company gatherings to office parties to team outings, everyone had a favorite memory.

Spring

Springtime meant our Employee Appreciation Breakfast cooked by our very own people operations team. Tampa went on a successful chartered fishing trip and Orlando participated in a ramp build for the Center of Independent Living. Don’t forget Fondue Day and Cinco de Mayo!

         

Summer

Baseball, bowling and the best fried chicken. In summer, Tampa enjoyed a box suite for the Threshers game, Orlando went bowling and everyone enjoyed Publix fried chicken on Fried Chicken Friday.

         

Fall

Fall means football tailgates at iVenture. It also means a haunted pub tour in Orlando, the Dreams Come True 5K in Jacksonville and a delicious Thanksgiving smörgåsbord across the company.

Winter

Everyone was in the holiday spirit. Jacksonville went to a hockey game, we participated in Family Support Services’ Angel Tree program, of course, the best time of year — the iVenture Holiday Party. Everyone had a merry time at Ponte Vedra Inn and Club. And some walked away with great prizes including a TV, cruise and Apple products.

Looking Forward

Goodbye teens, hello 20s. Beside our birthday bash, what else can iVenture expect in 2020? We spoke to Mark Schnitzius, iVenture co-founder and president to find out.

“2019 was a year of growth. New clients, new employees, new technology. Our industry continues to fare well — that’s always a good sign. 

In 2020, I expect iVenture to reach even greater heights. Celebrating 20 years of business is no small feat. It comes from learning, adjusting and implementing constantly. That’s how we continue to succeed.
