Road Trip With Purpose: 1,000 jobs. 1,000 jobseekers. 1,000 miles.

We’ve always believed in the power of the Midwest, so it’s no surprise that others are finding it a great place to live and work. 

Boomerangs are returning to the region to start companies, live sustainably, and find meaning in their work. VC firms are taking notice and investing heavily in middle of the country states — in the last five years, Michigan saw the highest growth in VC investments than any other state. Platforms like Rise of the Rest continue to see growth in the region and success in the companies they invest in. 

When people think of the Midwest, they might picture rolling hills and fields of farmlands. And it’s true, we have a bit of that in the heartland.

But we also have some hidden gems and many people working hard to put their cities on the map.

From unicorn startups to world class entertainment, vast lakes to bustling cities, there’s a breadth of diversity to living in the Midwest. And the possibilities are endless.

That’s why we’re setting out on our first-ever road trip to show you the region’s hidden gems when it comes to living and working in the Midwest. 

This is how pumped the team and I to travel with you ⬇

Ryan so excited for this road trip

During our adventures, we’ll chat with local startup leaders, community organizers, VCs. We’ll discover the best places to eat, drink, create and recharge. And best of all, we want you to come along for the ride, too.
