Billionaire Steve Case is on a mission to inspire and support tech entrepreneurs across the country.
He calls this mission the “Rise of the Rest” and rightfully so. With the talent and and momentum Silicon Valley has built up, there’s no reason they can’t travel to share valuable expertise and support for other cities.
We’ve covered before that Michigan looks ready for great tech and startup growth. Now you can have your chance to pitch to Steve Case. On June 24th in Detroit, there will be a fireside chat with Steve Case and Billionaire and local Founder of Quicken Loans Dan Gilbert.
