Conversations with Steve Case and Heartland Visionaries
Today, we have some incredibly exciting news to share with you. After nearly six years of making a significant impact by connecting thousands of individuals to new career opportunities, expanding companies into new regions, and facilitating investments in high-potential companies throughout the Heartland, we have embarked on a new adventure that fills an important gap in the conversation.
We’ve been pondering a question: Where are the stories of these remarkable heartland companies? Why do their founders, visionaries, and investors receive less recognition than their coastal counterparts?
Recognizing this disparity, we embarked on an experiment called Founder Fridays, where we spotlighted one exceptional founder every two weeks. The overwhelming interest and positive response we received for these founder stories motivated us to take this initiative further.
So, with great joy and anticipation, we proudly present our brand-new podcast, aptly titled The Mid-Point!
The Mid-Point aims to celebrate the stories of heartland companies and the inspiring individuals behind them. We firmly believe that these narratives deserve a prominent place in the entrepreneurial landscape. To kick off our podcast series, we have assembled a captivating launch collection, which includes an exclusive interview with the brilliant mind behind Rise of the Rest, Steve Case, recorded during our recent event in Cleveland.
You can listen by visiting Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and wherever you prefer to tune in to your favorite shows. We have an additional 20 captivating stories from various founders lined up for release over the next few months. By subscribing, you ensure that you won’t miss out on these inspiring conversations of heartland based companies.
