More conversations to be had on buses….

The StartupBus

As many good things do, the StartupBus began life as a half serious but fully beer-infused joke about driving a bus from San Francisco to Austin for SxSW 2010, with a bunch of friends attempting to launch a startup by the time they arrived.

In 2010, forming into six teams ion the bus, they produced six functional prototype web services and presented them to a panel of high profile investors. The inaugural bus received a lot of exposure, had the winning team offered funding to turn their prototype into an actual business, and created a community of entrepreneurs who still work together on their subsequent projects.

Now in its 2nd year, an dexpanded to 6 cities, it brings together the best do-ers, thinkers and designers who want to hack a real startup together over a few sleepless days in a confined space moving at 60mph.
