Utah-based Steve Down Cos. initially bought land in Rocklin for its new event venue – called The Falls Event Center – but the organization sold that property and instead built its center in Roseville.
Roseville’s city leaders had expressed interest in using the facility, Down said, and government business is important to making his business pencil out. The Falls in Roseville, 240 Conference Center Drive, opened in January and it’s Down’s second event center in the region. His group opened the The Falls in Elk Grove, 8280 Elk Grove Blvd., in October 2014.
In this session of the Great Work Insights Podcast, Todd Nordstrom speaks with Steve Down, a cause capitalist and serial entrepreneur. Steve speaks on the power of providing sustainable change through for-profit businesses built on a model of giving through connection with non-profit partners. He is the owner of several successful companies, including Even Stevens Sandwiches, Steve’s Hotel, Financially Fit, CE Karma, The Falls Event Centers, and Storm Maker Media–each built around a life-changing giveback.
