Our purpose is to see all we can do with all we have been given.
At 68 Ventures, we have no desire to be like anyone else. Good is the enemy of great and normal is the worst thing we could ever be. You will always know who we are and what we stand for. God has blessed us with more than we deserve by gifting us with incredible people, opportunities, and an intense passion for what we do, but we know He has much bigger plans for this Company.
Today, 68 Ventures is the holding company for numerous operating and development businesses focused in the real estate industry, however, real estate is not our purpose. It is merely our platform. Our purpose is to see all we can do with all we have been given. We have been given an immense amount, and with those gifts comes a responsibility to serve others, while striving to progress towards the best version of ourselves. We are committed to grow our operation beyond what it is today and create new business opportunities. Our story has to be worth telling to impact the world.
The stones in our logo represent David’s five rocks taken from the river prior to his battle against Goliath. With a calming confidence, David matched his competency with the opportunity to destroy the giant. It is a reminder for all of us to believe in your capabilities, be courageous, and above all else, trust God’s plans. We must actualize our potential through the gifts and talents given to us; this is how we obtain excellence and leave this world a better place.
Luke 12:48 declares, “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” Our 68 comes from everyone that sacrificed for us to be where we are today and for everyone who is counting on us going forward. It is a heavy burden to bear, but it is truly why we do what we do. The heavier the load, the more fulfillment we attain. As more and more people depend on us to help them achieve what they want in this life, the further aligned we become with our purpose. We have sought this responsibility from the beginning, knowing it is not something to be taken lightly, with the determination not to fail anyone that has placed their future in our hands.
Your 68 makes you tick.
Your 68 drives you to do the things you do.
In short, your 68 makes you strive to be better.
Your 68 is derived from the jersey number worn by hockey legend Jaromir Jagr during his illustrious career.
Jagr’s grandfather was killed in 1968 during the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia, so he wore the number 68 to honor his grandfather and his entire country every time he took the ice. Jagr was great because he didn’t play for money or medals – he played for his family and his country.
We take great pride in challenging not only one another, but also everyone we work with to seek out, identify and pursue their own 68.
