AUSSIE’S BUS COMP KICKS OFF FOR 2018 – US COACH TRAVEL IS KEY

ABC (Australia) - - NEWS -

AN AUS­TRALIAN’S UNIQUE ‘brain­storm­ing on a bus’ com­pe­ti­tion kicks off again this April 27 – May 1, 2018, and a slew of clever and in­no­va­tive busi­ness ideas are ex­pected to be born as com­peti­tors travel across Amer­ica against the clock.

Star­tupBus, an Aussie-bred con­cept that cre­ates a com­mu­nity of ‘bus­preneurs’, con­tin­ues to rack up miles af­ter first hit­ting the road in the USA in 2010, with the 2018 edi­tion just a month away and par­tic­i­pants en­ter­ing from all over the world.

The 2018 com­pe­ti­tion’s routes in­clude: Sil­i­con Val­ley, San Diego, Las Vegas, Mex­ico City, Texas, St. Louis, Detroit, Ohio, Florida, and New York.

Aus­tralian en­tre­pre­neur Elias Bizannes co-founded Star­tupBus, which is de­scribed as “equal parts hackathon, road trip and global com­mu­nity … chal­leng­ing top-tier tal­ent to hop on a bus and con­ceive, build and launch a start-up in 72 hours.”

If want to fol­low the ac­tion on­line you can do that at www.star­tupbus.com, where you can get all the lat­est com­pe­ti­tion up­dates, but to ac­tu­ally en­ter you’ll need a spe­cial in­vi­ta­tion code – be­cause they don’t just let any­one onto these great, mod­ern coaches. Tweet to @TheS­tar­tupBus to get one.
