The Harbor is thrilled to host Steve Case, Founder of AOL, on May 6th as a part of Revolution Ventures’ “Rise of the Rest” tour! Steve Case strongly believes in investing in places and sectors that can truly drive change, and that is not only limited to the Silicon Valley. 


At Revolution we love working with entrepreneurs and helping them to start and scale new businesses, which is why we are looking forward to firing up the Rise of the Rest bus again and hitting the road in early May…
— Steve Case

Steve and his team will be traveling south and visiting 5 key cities for innovation. In each city the Revolution team and partners will:

  • Visit local startups, accelerators and incubators
  • Hold public events with Steve Case, local entrepreneurs, investors, elected officials, civic leaders and others to discuss the local startup ecosystem
  • Run a pitch competition with a panel of all-star judges who decide which companies will receive $100,000 investments
  • Celebrate at a party and networking event for local leaders in each startup community

Steve will also be our next speaker for Entrepreneur Studio, which will take place on May 6th at Charleston Music Hall before the big pitch event. Both events are free and open to the public. Registration details coming soon!
