Last Chance! Oct. 14 NVTC Titans Breakfast with Steve Case Is Almost Sold Out!


Steve Case


Join more than 575 of your NVTC colleagues on Friday, October 14, for the first Titans event of the 2011-2012 season to hear Startup America Chairman and Revolution CEO Steve Case provide insight on the state of innovation and entrepreneurship in our industry. Launched by President Barack Obama at the White House in early 2011, the Startup America Partnership is an independent alliance of innovative entrepreneurs, corporations, foundations, universities and other leaders focused on promoting the growth and success of U.S. entrepreneurs.

Also a member of the White House Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, Case was chosen to represent America's entrepreneurs at President Obama's joint Congressional address on Thursday, September 8. Case stated that he's pleased the government is focused on, "the pivotal role that entrepreneurs play in creating jobs and ensuring our nation's competitiveness. High-growth entrepreneurial businesses have been responsible for nearly all of the net jobs created in the last three decades – so policies that make it easier for entrepreneurs to start and expand companies must be at the epicenter of any jobs effort."

Case is one of America's best-known and most accomplished entrepreneurs and philanthropists. After years of partnering with more than a dozen entrepreneurs as an investor and mentor, he created Revolution in 2005 to oversee his rapidly expanding investments. Case also co-founded America Online (AOL) in 1985, served as AOL Time Warner Chairman of the Board until 2003 and is Chairman of the Case Foundation, which has invested in hundreds of organizations, initiatives and partnerships in the U.S. and around the globe.

You won't want to miss this opportunity to hear the man CNBC calls "one of the nation's greatest entrepreneurs!"

It will also appear in The Voice of Technology and Capital Business and in an interactive version on the NVTC website throughout 2012.
