Google for Entrepreneurs Director Mary Grove will join Rise of the Rest as a partner later this year.

Grove, who has worked with Google for 14 years, announced the news Friday in a Medium post.

Building on a bus tour that spotlights tech communities outside of San Francisco, New York and Boston, D.C.–based Rise of the Rest raised a $150 million seed fund last year. Grove will join AOL cofounder Steve Case, J.D. Vance, Anna Mason and David Hall. She will work with the startups in the company’s portfolio, and sourcing new deals.

Grove will join in the spring, and she’ll also be relocating from Silicon Valley to Minnesota. Since 2011, she has been leading Google for Entrepreneurs, which looks to get the tech giant’s resources out to startup companies around the world. The effort launched six campuses, Google Demo Day and a partner network. It also led her to partner with Case and Rise of the Rest.

“Quite simply, I’ve fallen in love with the vision that Steve and his amazing team have built to invest in and grow startups outside of Silicon Valley” she wrote. “It speaks not only to my personal values and experience, but also to my belief in the future of where the innovation economy is headed.”
