Executive Voice

Shyon Keoppel’s SKventure Group Is Making A Name for Itself in the Los Angeles Market

SKventure Group is looking to capture a large market share of the Los Angeles area hospitality business, driven by its determined and skilled CEO, Shyon Keoppel. Skventure services the real estate, construction, and hospitality industry, and has been able to thrive because of its sustainability, cost efficiency, and business savvy of Keoppel. SKventure is composed of three different businesses: construction, real estate, hospitality. Each facilitates the other, and makes the group that much more effective and successful.

Beginning of the career

Keoppel began his operations in Oklahoma doing construction jobs on multi-family apartment buildings, and owns several booming real estate businesses in his hometown. As Keoppel was growing the real estate and construction side of SKventure, he founded Millennial Capital Group. This was done in order to provide financing and loans to his main projects, as well as third party ventures that needed funding.

Growth of the entrepreneur in the real estate industry

“People were coming to me with different investable ideas, so I started helping those who wanted to start their own companies, either with capital, or helping them execute their idea”, said Shyon. He first started in construction, but saw that construction and real estate go hand in hand, so this was a good opportunity to form SKventure, and to do everything in house. He used his construction company in many of his projects, mainly for his real estate ventures. Through word of mouth, his business started to grow very rapidly in Oklahoma.

Expansion of SKventure across the globe

The transition to hospitality was easy for Keoppel, as he began to develop restaurants, using some of the ideas from proven restaurants in big metropolitan cities. Keoppel decided to expand his operations towards the west coast, due to the fact that all the major brands are created in places like NYC, LA, and Miami. SKventure still plans to grow its operations and expand its real estate portfolio in Oklahoma, but given its massive success- SKventure is also seeking to gain traction in a much bigger market, like Los Angeles.

Why Los Angeles and not NYC?

Keoppel chose to bolster the SKventure name in a much bigger city like Los Angeles, rather than NYC or Miami, because he often visited Southern California in his youth to see his grandparents. He liked the area, and the positive memories convinced him this was the new city for SKventure to leave its footprint on. “We use our construction company for all of the ventures—from concept to design, everything is done in-house, and we use all of our companies when possible from start to finish of a new project”, he quoted.

And the success story of Keoppel and his brand continues

Keoppel is beginning to gain notoriety in Los Angeles thanks to several new endeavors, including 3rd Base Sports Bar. The bar initially opened in December 2019, but had to effectively strategize during the Covid pandemic, as substantial restrictions were put in place. This did not stop Keoppel, as he was able to successfully pivot and move his operations outside to the adjacent parking area. He has a big restaurant project in the works for Q1 of 2021, the debut of this restaurant was delayed because the pandemic slowed down the process of obtaining permits from the city. Look out for this restaurant in one of the LA area’s major hotspots on Melrose and Crescent Heights. Keoppel will also be launching a restaurant, as well as a lounge, on the iconic Sunset blvd. in Q1 of 2021.
