AOL cofounder Steve Case will soon pack his bags to embark on his third “Rise of the Rest” bus tour, which this time will focus on the South.

Case will be making stops in Richmond, Va., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., Charleston, S.C., Atlanta, Ga., and New Orleans, La. In each city, he will visit local startups, participate in public events and run a pitch competition. Each winner will win $100,000 in investments.

The May 4-8 trip is backed by Case’s investment firm RevolutionGoogle for Entrepreneurs and UP Global.

“The Rise of the Rest bus tour is heading south to some of America’s oldest cities where entrepreneurs are creating some of the newest businesses, innovations, and jobs in Richmond, Raleigh-Durham, Charleston, Atlanta, and New Orleans,” Case said in a press release.

“I look forward to celebrating the promise of these rising communities, making investments in local startups, and shining a light on the importance of entrepreneurship in the American south and across the nation,” he added.

We spoke to Case for the Technical.ly Podcast after he wrapped up his last bus tour, of cities in the Midwest, last fall.
