The Engine team is getting back on the road to visit startups across the country. Next Monday, we’ll kick off our fourth Rise of the Rest tour with Steve Case, co-founder of AOL and CEO of Revolution, along with a busload of startup investors, startup community leaders, and startup advocates like ourselves. Together we’ll be highlighting the promise and growth of entrepreneurship far beyond the more familiar ecosystems like Silicon Valley. Our first stop is Baltimore, MD, then it’s on to Philadelphia, PA, Buffalo, NY, Manchester, NH and finally Portland, ME. In each city, we’ll be talking to entrepreneurs as well as business and community leaders. And at the end of each day, Steve Case will commit to investing $100,000 in the winner of a local startup pitch competition.
If you live in or around Baltimore, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Manchester, or Portland, come join us by RSVP’ing at the links below. Along the way, we’ll post dispatches from the cities we’ve seen. For updates, follow #RiseofRest on Twitter.
