Genomenon was selected as one of eight finalists to pitch at Steve Case’s RISE OF THE REST® Pitch Competition on October 11th at Michigan Theater. RISE OF THE REST® with Steve Case is a nationwide effort to work closely with entrepreneurs in emerging startup ecosystems. With a view towards a new era for the entrepreneurship across the U.S. — high-growth companies can now start and scale anywhere, not just in a few coastal cities.
The RISE OF THE REST® tour is a five day/five city bus tour where companies pitch at the competition and Steve Case personally invests a $100,000 in local startups for at total of $500,000 across the tour. Throughout the day of the tour, Steve visits the fastest growing local startup companies to hear directly from innovators and spend time learning from local policy and business leaders. The competition ends with a big party to celebrate startups with the community.
The Ann Arbor main events are at the Michigan Theater and free for all attendees. Come cheer on Genomenon’s CEO, Mike Klein, as he takes on the challenge to tell the Genomenon story in less than 4 minutes to Steve Case and the Ann Arbor Community!
