Applications are open for the few remaining spots on the inaugural StartupBus Pacific happening in Australia. After 5 years in other parts of the world, StartupBus is excited to come to Australia, which is a sort of homecoming for StartupBus’ Australian founder, Elias. We are also thrilled to announce that our ride for this competition will be this land yacht below – built for the Rolling Stones upcoming tour!
If you haven’t heard of StartupBus yet, the concept is simple – 25 developers, designers, and biz dev/marketing people (what we call hackers, hipsters, and hustlers) get on a bus as strangers – you have 3 days to break into teams and design, build, and launch a product – On a bus – At 110 km/h – To be pitched and judged on stage at SydStart Main Day 2014. The road is rough and the internet is spotty – and there will be a several other curveballs thrown at you as well.
We depart Sydney Friday August 29, return Sunday August 31 stopping to spend the night and have events in Melbourne and Canberra. There will be a full day to wrap up work and polish pitches September 1 before presenting at SydStart on Tuesday, September 2. Of course – there is plenty more to it than that, but we can’t ruin all the surprises just yet…
StartupBus has been described alternately as a life-changing experience and “special forces boot camp for entrepreneurs”. It is definitely an experience to you will never forget. If you are the type of person who craves a challenge and wants to get outside your normal comfort zone, now is your chance to make that happen – and join a family of over 1,000 global StartupBus alumni that represent some of the top tech talent in the world.
