Applications to pitch a startup at Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Road Trip with Steve Case are open now until Feb. 24. The Rise of the Rest Road Trip will visit Wichita April 20 and award a $100,000 investment to an early stage startup based in Kansas.

Revolution recently announced that its next five-day Rise of the Rest Road Trip will return to America’s Heartland the week of April 20 to highlight startup successes in Wichita; Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Okla; Northwest Arkansas; and St. Louis, Mo.

During each stop on the Rise of the Rest Road Trip, the team meets with and visits entrepreneurs, local business and government leaders, and ecosystem builders. The Road Trip also hosts daily fireside discussions and a startup pitch competition in which $500,000 is invested from the Rise of the Rest Seed Fund ($100,000 will be invested in a local startup at each stop).
