Follow Along As Startup Bus Rolls One_darrellj | Feb 28, 2014
Startup Bus is once again in high gear, as scrappy startup teams across North America (as well as remote Elancers around the globe) motor their way towards Texas for another epic showdown.
Follow the action through Thursday, via our social media pages, as we report live from inside various Startup Buses. This includes regular updates on how a plethora of talented Elancers are helping fuel the innovation.
In fact Elancers have been a huge part of many successful Startup Buses in the past, and have been on several winning teams.
This year, Startup Buses departed Sunday from Mexico City, Kansas City, Seattle, New York City, San Francisco, Tampa Bay and Nashville. They’ll wrap up the completion in Texas on Thursday, March 6.
If you’re not familiar with Startup Bus North America, it’s a wild pitch competition. More specifically it’s where an assortment of entrepreneurs (most of whom are complete strangers to each other) pile into a bus with one thought in mind: Combine the know-how onboard (and online) to create a great company.
It’s a 3-day journey where each team buckles down to first decide their best collective idea for a company, then uses every resource available to bring that idea to life before rolling into Austin.
Hold onto your hat, as Startup Bus North America is sure to be a fast and festive journey.
