Back in 2011, the first edition of the StartupBus Europe competition was won by a part Belgian, part Dutch social travel startup called Wander. Now it is time for the first Belgian bus to participate in the competition against startups of other buses.
Belgium is one of those hidden gems. One of our countrymen founded Drupal/Acquia, another one ruled the Tour de France in the sixties. Oh, and we basically invented club culture. Not to mention the beer, waffles, mussels and the real french fries.
We are looking for the best developers, designers and hustlers who can build the first iteration of a world-changing product or service in 72 hours. And get traction for it! And pitch it on the stage on our global stage to our judges and investors!
While they’re building their startup they will get coached and learn how to validate their startup idea, how to prioritize what’s important for their MVP, how to pitch & sell and what their limits are.
Remember: StartupBus is not about business plans and magical predictions of the future (yow Dave McClure, we got this!). StartupBus is about getting you out of your comfort zone, about building something great and finding out if you can get customers for it!
