The StartUp Bus is a bus unlike any other in the world and trust us, it’s a bus that you’re going to want to catch.
Why? Because it’s a bus that whisks its passengers on a one-of-a-kind experience unlike any other in the world, and dare we say – it has the potential to change lives forever.
The StartUp Bus is part hackathon, part road trip and entrepreneur bootcamp all rolled into one experience that links a global talent community. Passengers on the StartUp Bus are some of the best and brightest in their respective fields – developers, designers, and influencers (think marketers and the business savvy.) The hand-picked passengers are placed on a bus trip that lasts for 72 hours where they will create a startup from scratch and practice pitching their concept; competing for the opportunity to share their idea on the TechStars stage.
St. Louis is one of the cities selected to participate in the North America StartUp Bus tour this year. Application are being accepted (you can apply here, but hurry! spots are VERY limited) and the theme for the St. Louis StartUp Bus is health & fitness.
The St. Louis bus departs St. Louis on May 15th. The entire experience runs until May 19th. (More information can be found here.) The St. Louis StartUp Bus is just one of many StartUp buses across North America filled with other entrepreneurs as they too build their startup concepts and compete for a change to pitch on the TechStars stage at Boulder, Colorado’s Startup Week event.
We know plenty of our readers have the talent it takes to make it on the bus and encourage YOU to apply for an incredible experience that is continuing to build upon the exciting momentum of our startup ecosystem here in St. Louis.
