Finalists announced for Steve Case’s “Rise of the Rest” pitch competition



Case and the Revolution team are hosting five competitions in seven days, from York, Pa. to Green Bay, Wis.

The competitions spotlight local entrepreneurs focused on social, environmental, and community issues. Case kicked off his “Rise of the Rest” bus tour earlier this year to call attention to entrepreneurs outside major U.S. hubs like Silicon Valley and New York.

“Nearly 90 percent of venture capital last year went to blue states and just 10 percent went to states that voted for President Trump,” Case said in an interview after last year’s election.

The roster of finalists and tour schedule for the Midwest can be found here.

Each winner will get a $100,000 investment from Case personally. (He’s posted some tips for finalists on Facebook.)
