A Walking Tour with VegasTechFund of the Downtown Vegas Startup SceneAlissa Walker1/07/14 8:28pmFiled to: Downtown ProjectLas VegasZapposTony Hsiehurbanismcitiescesces 2014vegas tech fundAndy Whitestartups71EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkIf you've been to downtown Las Vegas in the last few years, you've likely been to Fremont Street, specifically the caged section near several historic casinos that hosts a nightly laser light show. But, thanks to the Downtown Project, the neighborhood is now home to a large and diverse concentration of startups, each slowly making their mark on the landscape. As part of the Downtown Project's commitment, $50 million went to the VegasTechFund, a seed-stage investment fund that nurtures and advises local startups, and often lures new ones to town. The fund works out of a former law office called Work in Progress, that has three co-working locations, one in the Emergency Arts building I visited earlier in the day. This one, with a large garage on site, also doubles as an event space for social functions and serves as ground zero for the local startup community.ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode.
