Zipcar Films Captures the Essence of Downtown Vegas In Their New Short


In the startup community we hear the term “hedging bets” thrown around a lot because, frankly, starting a company is a big risk. But seldom is there a bigger bet placed than the one Tony Hsieh threw down on Downtown Las Vegas.

Hsieh took it upon himself to catalyze the revitalization efforts via the Downtown Project: a group of passionate people committed to transforming Downtown Vegas into the most community-focused large city in the world. The numerous projects, businesses, and spaces they have helped build has in fact turned what was once a rough and tumble neighborhood into a prospering community.
