StartupBus at FatPipe ABQ
June 5, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
To jump on a bus, conceive, build and launch a startup with a team of strangers in 72 hours?
Well that’s exactly what a bus full of entrepreneurs are doing and they’re coming right here to Albuquerque to pitch to you!
The StartupBus competition is engineered to accelerate the entrepreneurial process by placing 30 strangers on a 72-hour bus ride where they collaborate and compete to create a VC worthy startup by the end of the journey. Most people board the bus with an idea they want to pursue, however, in order to succeed they need to convince their fellow “Buspreneurs” that their idea is the best. They form teams and together create working concepts that include demos, business plans and profit models … only the best ideas succeed!
StartupBus has six busses traveling from around the U.S. and heading to Nashville, TN (with one bus stopping right here in Albuquerque at FatPipe ABQ) – every team from each bus pitch their concept to a panel of investors, and one team will receive funding – This is WINNER TAKE ALL!
Save the Date – June 5, 2015 starting at 10:00am. Those that register to join us get a breakfast burrito!
