Rise of the Rest Pitch Competition

In 2014, Steve Case launched the Rise of the Rest Road Trip to nine cities. Along the way, Steve and the team heard dozens of pitches, met hundreds of entrepreneurs and hosted pitch competitions in each city. This year, we’re hitting the road again to showcase entrepreneurship in ten more cities. But first, we're doubling down on the great companies we've already met from five of the cities we visited – Madison, Minneapolis, Des Moines, Kansas City and St. Louis – by inviting them to pitch at SXSW.
Each company will have five minutes to pitch, followed by three minutes of Q&A with all-star judges including Sallie Krawcheck (Chair, Ellevate Network), Troy Carter (Founder and CEO of the Atom Factory), and Steve Case (Chairman and CEO of Revolution). The judges will determine the winning startup and offer an additional $150,000 investment courtesy of Steve. The stakes are high and the cause is good so come cheer on your favorite team and accelerate the Rise of the Rest. Presented by Revolution.
