IT BUSINESS NET -- Ranked number 4, San Francisco’s special events production and design team Got Light tops the San Francisco Business Times list of the Bay Area’s 25 largest LGBT-owned businesses. Got Light began in 2004 when San Francisco State University graduates Russell Holt and Jon Retsky scraped up a couple hundred dollars to rent lighting equipment to produce their first event for a small nonprofit fundraiser. Today, Got Lights co-owners design more than 1,000 events a year from intimate gatherings to blowout events like the recent Asian Art Museums Opening Gala, San Francisco Symphony Chinese New Year Gala and the upcoming San Francisco City Hall Centennial Celebration.
