Written by 

case-steve3Think *Steve Case* founder of AOL .  Think Walter Issacson, New Orleans-born author of biography of Steve Jobs and head of the prestigious Aspen group.  Think Irvin Mayfield, famed New Orleans trumpeter and businessman.

 Think $100,000 for a *Sharktank*-type pitch.  

Think Rise of the Rest Road Tour here in New Orleans today.

Then think about your watching Case and New Orleans-born Issacson and Mayfield discussing entrepreneurship in a Fireside chat and then an incredible entrepreneur “pitch”.

Today, Bayoubuzz.com, will be webcasting via google hangouts this incredible “Rise of the Rest Tour” event.  You can watch it here or on Bayoubuzz.com http://www.bayoubuzz..com.
