By Team Symba

Happy Thanksgiving from the entire Symba team! 2020 has been a transformative year full of highs and lows, but we have so much to be thankful for. As we virtually gather around the table, our team at Symba is holding space for gratitude. We took a moment for thanks and to acknowledge the challenges that spurred individual and company-wide growth this year. Today - and every day - we are thankful for the community supporting Symba's mission and the team driving it. In 2020 we've grown our team, scaled our product, and built a customer base. We could not be here without our community and champions.

From all of us at Symba, we wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Below, we share some words of gratitude from the Symba team. 

Words cannot even capture the sense of gratitude I have for our amazing team at Symba and community of mentors and supporters. This year has been challenging yet extremely rewarding in so many ways. Our team has reached new milestones that we could have not achieved alone. 2020 has taught us that we need to be ready to embrace change and learn to build meaningful relationships in a whole new way. Now here’s to 2021 and the great things that await!
