Tech innovation in the United States is dominated by a few cities on the coasts.

Billionaire investor Steve Case, one of the founders of America Online, is on a mission to level the playing field for American innovators. He launched a project called, “Rise of the Rest,” where he and fellow business people travel to smaller cities and towns across the US in search of the next big thing.
