Earlier this month, Steve Case and the Revolution team hit the road for the eighth Rise of the Rest Road Trip, bringing the bus to Orlando, Florida’s Space Coast, Tampa Bay, Miami, and San Juan, Puerto Rico. At the end of each tour day, we hosted a pitch competition where a local startup received a $100,000 investment from Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund.

For the pitch competitions in Orlando, Tampa Bay, Miami, and Puerto Rico, innovative startups based within a 100-mile radius of a tour stop were invited to apply. Our pitch competition in the Space Coast featured startups from the Space Coast region and other rising cities from across the country whose core focus relates to space, drone, aviation technologies, or adjacent focus areas.

We asked the winners in each city to tell us about their companies, provide advice to fellow entrepreneurs, and share a little more about themselves.
