In this fireside-chat discussion, Steve Case, one of America’s best-known and most accomplished entrepreneurs and business leaders, will discuss his efforts to support entrepreneurship and technology in America through his “Rise of the Rest” initiative. What conditions give rise to successful businesses? How can digital technologies support entrepreneurship? What challenges has he seen and how can they be addressed at the local, state, and federal level? What is the role for public policy?
Joining Mr. Case in the discussion will be Secretary Jacob J. Lew, former U.S. Treasury Secretary and a visiting professor at SIPA.
The discussion will be moderated by Dean Merit E. Janow, School of International and Public Affairs.
This event is co-sponsored by SIPA's Entrepreneurship and Policy Initiative, Columbia Organization of Rising Entrepreneurs, and Columbia Entrepreneurship Innovation and Design. Supported by the NASDAQ Educational Foundation.
