Event Details

SPIRE's Young Alumni Initiative is joining forces with ULI San Francisco's Young Leaders Group and Silicon Valley Program Committee to co-host a Fireside Chat with SREC member Steve Dostart (MBA '90), President and Founder of Dostart Development Company. ULI's Fireside Chat series is an exclusive opportunity to get together in a small group setting to engage with senior real estate leaders on a variety of topics. Get to know YLG members and fellow SPIRE young professionals while learning about relevant real estate topics and career paths.
