LETTER FROM THE CHAIR

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” Winston Churchill, November 10, 1942

In 2010, the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce, turned 100. The Chamber threw a party – The Centennial Celebration. Hosted by Tesla Motors, we celebrated the intersection of the achievements of the past with the promise of tomorrow and marked our own “end of the beginning.”

Rebecca Teutschel Chair

Through the strong current that runs between the past centennial and the new one, Palo Alto today is in many ways a reflection of the landscape from the past. It includes a story repeated time and again: in a Palo Alto garage two young entrepreneurs have an idea, convinced they can invent something that might just change the world. The history of our city defines us. It supports a unique set of characteristics that motivates leaders in innovation, science and technology to include Palo Alto in their heritage. They are names recognized around the world: Hewlett-Packard, Stanford University, Stanford Medical Center, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Tesla, Facebook, Space Systems/Loral, VMware and SAP to name just a few. The Chamber is proud to count many of these companies as our members. We are all enriched by the quality of what they do. For it is the quality of the people and the organizations public and private, large and small, that are the lynchpins of our business, cultural and residential communities. This is what draws the best and the brightest to our city. As the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce moves firmly into our Bicentennial, we invite you to join us. Join us in delivering advocacy, leadership and access to all businesses – large and small. Work with us to deliver on the promise of Palo Alto as we dream big together in discovering the “Next Big Thing.” We know it will continue to happen right here, our city’s people and our heritage guarantee it.

LETTER FROM THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

Palo Alto’s Economic Development Manager Is

Strong Advocate for Local Businesses T

he City of Palo Alto works to support our business community’s success. Through its economic development efforts, Development Center improvement initiative, long range planning and transportation efforts, innovative partnerships, and special events we will continue in 2012 to promote Palo Alto as a premier Bay Area location. The Chamber is a well- grounded part of the community and is focused on understanding and serving the business needs in Palo Alto. Through a partnership with the City, prospective businesses are provided with information about Palo Alto and given tools that help them succeed here. We also work together to help employees, visitors, and guests have a great experience here. The City consults with the Chamber to gauge its members perspective on issues. We work collaboratively to address complex issues facing businesses in the community. For example, as the City has been re-tooling its approach to the development permit process, the Chamber has been actively engaged to develop and implement change. They are helping us to make the process more transparent, predictable, and customer service oriented. This community benefits from the Chambers collegial input and assistance on these types of issues. The Chamber provides many opportunities for gathering, mixing, and getting engaged in Palo Alto. Business and City leaders will often be found attending a regular mixer, Business Expo or the annual Tall Tree or Athena Awards events. Along with the Chamber Board and Ambassadors, Elected Officials and City Staff also regularly welcome new businesses to town and celebrate existing business successes (just look for those big ribbon-cutting scissors!). There are also many ways business owners and employees can get involved in civic activities. I encourage you to consider volunteering at monthly meetings of the Chambers committees or board, or joining one of Palo Alto’s boards or commissions. So, whether you find yourself here to enjoy a visit, get an education, start a new job, or spend a lifetime, be sure to stop by the Chamber or give me a call and we’ll help you connect with, and thrive in, our community. Sincerely,

Thomas J. Fehrenbach | Economic Development Manager 250 Hamilton Avenue | Palo Alto, CA 94301 D: 650.329.2604 | E: thomas.fehrenbach@cityofpaloalto.org

FiveStars shakes up the customer loyalty industry with one simple card Written by: Angela Rodriguez

LOYALTY, SIMPLIFIED As every legendary tale begins, it started out like any other ordinary day. Victor Ho walked into his empty apartment where he would eventually run daily operations for his newly founded startup, FiveStars Loyalty. He was greeted with a blank stare from the bare white walls, and that’s when it actually hit him. ‘Well, here we go,’ he thought.  

After the six-hour drive up from Los Angeles in the wee hours of the morning, Ho arrived to his new home in the heart of Silicon Valley. “The very next day, I sat on my couch and started coding the beginnings of the FiveStars platform,” he says. Over the course of a year and a half, Ho and his team have been able to build FiveStars into an emerging tech giant that has taken the customer loyalty industry by storm.

If you live in the Bay Area, you probably have a FiveStars card already. If not, here’s the breakdown.   You know how you carry around those buy 10 get one free punch cards? Or those loyalty cards to your favorite stores you keep on your keychain? Now imagine that instead of all those cards, you had only one card that kept track of all those points - just one card based on your phone number. So, if you forgot your card or lost it, you can still claim your rewards with just your number. And with that same card, you can also check in on Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare.

“I thought this adventure would maybe last about two years; well, that was what I had committed to.” — FOUNDER MATT DOKA

When asked about FiveStars’ sky rocketing success, co-founder Matt Doka chuckles. “I thought this adventure would maybe last about two years; well, that was what I had committed to,” he says. “I imagined that we may or may not come up with some great idea, work out of our garage and enjoy a lifestyle improvement, learn a lot about software engineering and the technology world… It definitely turned out way better than that.” Originally from California and Texas, FiveStars’ founders met and became friends while working at McKinsey & Company, a large consulting firm in New York. “We were both in a corporate finance group at McKinsey, an elite group you could say,” Ho smirks. “So early on we had a lot of events together, which is how we originally met. As time went on, between leading our prayer fellowship group and having startup brainstorming sessions, we decided to really pursue the idea of starting our own company and began meeting once or twice a week just putting together our ideas.”

S! RD CA H C UN YP N MA

While at McKinsey, the young entrepreneurs worked with a wide variety of industries and Doka was always on the lookout for different opportunities for innovation. “Most people our age, in general, aren’t able to get these inside looks with multiple Fortune 500 companies,” he says. “So I had that goal in mind to keep my eyes open for problems that needed to be solved and come up with creative ways to solve those problems.”

Many of these companies they encountered currently ran loyalty programs for their customers or were looking to start one, but many of these programs just weren’t cutting it. “Everyone is burnt out on the daily deal marketing programs and everyone is moving to loyalty, but the options that were available never had it all: email and text message campaigns, social media and point-ofsale integration,” Ho says. “We wanted to create something that combined all the options into one universal system, so that’s what we did.” In just one year, more than 900 businesses currently use FiveStars as their premium loyalty service and over 450,000 people carry around a FiveStars card in their back pocket.

No longer crammed in the cofounding duo’s apartment, the company now has about 50 employees who Doka considers family. “Loyalty is a very competitive space and it can be tough at times, but we all look out for each other,” he says. “We really want to make it all work, which makes it a lot of fun and makes FiveStars feel like it’s a worthwhile place to be.” Ho credits his team’s loyalty to FiveStars’ continued success. “I think the best companies have people who aren’t just smart or hard working, although we clearly have both. They also have people who are really committed to each other,” he says. “Otherwise, in the inevitable roller coaster that every startup is, you start losing passengers unless they are all super loyal to each other. We’ve just had

a really strong team that has stuck together through the slow months and the celebratory months. And the result is that we have made it to our next milestone.” FiveStars’ milestone is a recordbreaking one. In July, they secured a $13.9 million dollar Series A round of funding led by DCM and Lightspeed Venture Partners. With funding in the bank, Ho says national expansion is on the horizon. Already a force in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, FiveStars officially launched in Chicago in August, and they project to be in at least 10 new markets by the end of next year. “I’m 100% convinced that what’s going to be the difference between this milestone and the next milestone that we will go through is going to be the exact same thing: loyalty and dedication from the same group and having that affect the new people that we bring on as well,” Ho says. “We are all really excited about what is ahead of us. It should be a lot of fun.”
