CSQ LA Visionaries Summit 2017
Los Angeles' brightest minds and entrepreneurs from across industry come together to discuss the sustainable growth of Los Angeles. Connect. Educate. Inspire.
LOS ANGELES, Calif., October 4, 2017 (Newswire.com) - For the fourth consecutive year, C-Suite Quarterly is hosting the Los Angeles Visionaries Summit – on Friday October 6, 2017 – bringing together industry and thought leaders from across the region for introspective and informed discussions surrounding inspired ideas, connective leadership, building community, and forging partnerships all in an effort to further unite Los Angeles. CSQ’s tentpole event of the year, the Visionaries Summit is a culmination of four quarters worth of content, that celebrates the men and women who are elevating the Los Angeles economic and cultural ecosystem.
More than 30 speakers will come together to discuss topics that affect Los Angeles as the second-largest US market and how, from Los Angeles, these men, women, and companies impact and shape the world. Conversations will touch on emerging growth in tech startups to social impact entrepreneurship, the influence of streaming television and Hollywood’s new deal structures, the benefit of public private partnerships, the role philanthropic donations have on systemic change, and the arrival of disruptive digital media companies.
Closing a day of compelling discussions will be philanthropist Melanie Lundquist to take the stage to share the story – and resonant impact – behind her $50M founding donation to the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools followed by a conversation with Craig Calhoun, the president of the Berggruen Institute and billionaire Nicolas Berggruen, who founded the $500M eponymously named think tank in 2010 in an effort to develop new ideas to shape political, economic, and social institutions in an era of Great Transformations.
