Celebrating Entrepreneurship Across America

We believe in the power of entrepreneurship to change the world. Our mission is to accelerate the entrepreneurial spirit and empower the communities from coast to coast that are keeping the American Dream alive for future generations.

So we hit the road - stopping in Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Nashville - to celebrate the progress and tell the stories of the people and ideas that are reinventing some of America's greatest cities one startup at a time.

CONGRATS TO ALL THE WINNERS

At each stop on the Rise of the Rest Road Tour we hosted a pitch competition, pitting the best startups in each city against one another for a chance to win $100,000 from Steve Case. After fielding hundreds of applications and assembling an all-star team of judges in each city, we are proud to announce the winning teams:

Detroit: Stik.com
Pittsburgh: SolePower LLC
Cincinnati: Frameri
Nashville: Checkd.in

These four startups represent the best of what each city's entrepeneurial community has to offer and we are thrilled to be their partner for the future.
