Celebrating Entrepreneurship Across America
We believe in the power of entrepreneurship to change the world. Our mission is to catalyze entrepreneurship and empower the communities from coast to coast that are keeping the American Dream alive for future generations.
In 2014, we launched the Rise of the Rest Road Tour with two bus tours to nine American cities including Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Nashville Madison, Minneapolis, Des Moines, St. Louis and Kansas City. We met with hundreds of founders, CEOs, investors and civic leaders; heard dozens of pitches and invested $1 million to foster emerging startup ecosystems in America's heartland.
