In an effort to inspire support for the downtown Las Vegas community, CatalystCreativ is excited to announce its enactment of Catalyst Week, a dynamic event series with Zappos CEO, Tony Hsieh and the Downtown Project. Held every fourth week of the month for 12 months, these engagements will explore strategic partnerships in philanthropy, wellness, music, fashion, education, and technology. Experts from each industry will immerse themselves in the downtown Las Vegas culture as part of this series, exclusively curated by CatalystCreativ. Attendees will be housed at The Ogden, a high-end apartment complex in the heart of Las Vegas, and work remotely from this site each week. Each attendee will also be invited to participate in a Zappos tour, a downtown tour, and become a part of the community, attending dinners hosted by Vegas leaders and spending time at locally-produced events. Additionally, attendees will be asked to give a filmed TED-style talk where they connect with an audience of social influencers and organizers.
