Rise of the Rest Nashville: A Recap by the Attendees


Last week, the Rise of the Rest Tour traveled through the heart of the United States to highlight the the startup regions thriving between the coasts. These are the places we don't always think of first when we say "Startup Hub". There are many such cities, but this trip put a spotlight on Detroit, Pittsburg, Cincinnati, and Nashville. Whether you were able to join us in Nashville or not, we want to give you the opportunity to relive the day through the eyes of the attendees.
