Book Talk, Discussion, and Signing
Georgetown University is proud to host one of America’s most successful entrepreneurs and CEOs, Steve Case, co-founder of America Online (AOL) and CEO of Revolution LLC. Hosted in partnership with the Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation, the Baker Center for Leadership and Governance, and the Global Social Entrepreneurship Initiative, Case will discuss his new book, The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur’s Vision of the Future.
In The Third Wave, Steve Case takes us behind the scenes to some of the most consequential and riveting business decisions of our time and predicts that we’re at the dawn of the next technological revolution unlike anything we’ve seen before—the Third Wave of the internet— that will transform the economy and the way we live our lives.
“Part memoir, part manifesto, and part playbook for the future,” Case’s The Third Wave shares a roadmap for how anyone can succeed in a world of rapidly changing technology.
Please join us in welcoming Steve Case to Georgetown for this insightful event on the future of the internet.
