What to Expect

StartupBus: Accelerate is half unconference, half programmed event. Never attended an unconference? Basically some of the topics will be decided on the spot the day of the event by the attendees. It's the perfect chance to ask those burning questions from some amazingly talented people. So for every event listed below there will also be flexible time where you can suggest a new topic. Chaos welcome! This is StartupBus!

What is StartupBus?

StartupBus is a global organization that hosts the world's most intense hackathon. Every year for the past five years, StartupBus: North America 30 participants get on buses leaving from Florida, San Francisco, New York, Mexico City and Chicago and in three days they have to build a prototype product and business plan. This year, for the first time the StartupBus is heading to Nashville. See what insanely talented people are capable of building in three days at Accelerate: Nashville.

StartupBus Finals

As part of Accelerate: Nashville you'll get to see the latest crop of participants in StartupBus: North America. They just spent three days on a bus building awesome tech products. Hear their pitches. Offer advice. Gain new insights.
