Entrepreneurship has taken on new meaning in the changing ‘Web 3’ technological age. When people talk of entrepreneurship nowadays, places like Silicon Valley, New York, or Boston seem to come up on a far more consistent basis than cities like Omaha, Cleveland, or even Philadelphia. But this notion is changing across the country.

In his latest book, The Rise of the Rest: How Entrepreneurs in Surprising Places are Building the New American Dream, America Online co-founder and New York Times bestselling author Steve Case shows us that whether it’s indoor farming in coal country, freight logistics in Chattanooga, or Styrofoam alternatives in Richmond, VA, a diverse array of founders are leveraging regional strengths and betting on the future of innovation outside of the traditionally-centralized tech hubs.

Join us for an exclusive conversation with Case to gain insight into how your region can leverage its innovative strengths and create a culture of inclusive entrepreneurship that rivals that of the mainstream.

Each attendee will receive a copy of The Rise of the Rest: How Entrepreneurs in Surprising Places are Building the New American Dream.
