“Not everyone can become a great entrepreneur, but a great entrepreneur can come from anywhere.” – Ratatouille (sort of)

The ride of a lifetime.

Substitute “artist” for “entrepreneur” or whatever field you’re interested in, and you’ll stumble upon one of the greatest truths the cinematic universe has ever taught us.

Great people, in any field or industry, can be found in any nook on the planet. Yes, the beautiful minds in tech + entrepreneurship exist everywhere, but unfortunately, opportunity does not.

This summer, The Advancing Black Entrepreneurs bus hits the road to bring opportunity to greatness as 30 top black tech talents and entrepreneurs from across the country seek to create the next great tech innovation.

The ABE StartupBus will embark on this incredible five day journey from America’s Heartland to Austin, Texas while going neck to neck with six other competitor buses. At the final destination your team will get the chance to pitch your amazing startup idea to real VC’s and Tech Ambassadors and StartupBus family.

StartupBus is tough! It’s unlike any hackathon or bootcamp or accelerator you’ve ever heard of. Why? Because it’s like all 3 combined (on a bus)! You will be challenged, you will be stretched but most of all, you will grow beyond anything you could have become on your own.

If you’re ready to be part of the tech industry’s most legendary journey, Apply Now.
