Watch Steve Case, Walter Issacson, Irvin Mayfield, Zach Streif today
Written by 

case-steve3Think *Steve Case* founder of AOL .  Think Walter Issacson, New Orleans-born author of biography of Steve Jobs and head of the prestigious Aspen group.  Think Irvin Mayfield, famed New Orleans trumpeter and businessman.

 Think $100,000 for a *Sharktank*-type pitch.  

Think Rise of the Rest Road Tour here in New Orleans today.

Then think about your watching Case and New Orleans-born Issacson and Mayfield discussing entrepreneurship in a Fireside chat and then an incredible entrepreneur “pitch”.

Today,, will be webcasting via google hangouts this incredible “Rise of the Rest Tour” event.  You can watch it here or on  

Here are the details:.

2pm - 3pm: Fireside Chat Interview with Steve Case, Walter Isaacson, and Irvin Mayfield 

3pm - 5pm: Pitch Competition with Steve Case, Jean Case, Irvin Mayfield, Ti Martin, and Zach Strief for $100K 

During the Rise of the Rest tour, Steve and his team visit select cities that are showing very promising signs of entrepreneurial growth. So far the bus tour has visited 9 cities and this next tour starts in Richmond (5/4), continues on to Raleigh Durham (5/5), Charleston (5/6), and Atlanta (5/7), and ends in New Orleans (5/8). Saving the best for last...of course.
