Sunwater Capital was established by Stephany Yu and Matthew Chervenak, entrepreneurs who founded and grew global businesses across information and real estate.

The name “Sunwater” signifies two resources critical for life to grow and flourish. Sunwater Capital’s aim is to provide the resources – capital and experience – entrepreneurs can leverage to grow and shape their industries. “Sun” and “water” also echo the ancient concept of yin and yang – that complementary people, ideas, and styles lead to better decisions and richer experiences.
