The Rest is Rising: Entrepreneurship in America

#sxsw #risingrest

Steve Case has worn several hats over the years: as an entrepreneur he co-founded America Online and brought the Internet to the masses; as a venture capitalist, he invests in people and ideas that are changing the world; and as a philanthropist and advocate he has championed the cause of entrepreneurs and startups everywhere.

Join Steve, founder and CEO of Revolution and one of America’s most respected entrepreneurs, and Emily Chang of Bloomberg TV, for an in-depth conversation about the trends and ideas shaping our future. He will explore the changing geography of entrepreneurship in America, the impact of politics and public policy on our most promising startups and the challenges associated with marrying vision and execution.
