Penn’s Center for Innovation set up a quick stop for Steve Case during his Rise of the Rest Road Trip in Philadelphia on September 29th. “Rise of the Rest” with Steve Case is a nationwide effort to tell this story and work closely with entrepreneurs in emerging startup ecosystems. Since 2014, Steve Case, the Revolution team, and partners have visited 19 cities and invested a total of $2 million in new businesses.
For this event, PCI put together a venue for Penn students to showcase themselves as innovators and entrepreneurs to Steve Case and Mayor Nutter on Tuesday, September 29th. Many GRASP Lab students were involved by putting their best foot forward and presenting their startups and ideas as well.
