StartupBus Florida is an essential member of Florida’s greater tech ecosystem. It allows us to promote the best and brightest tech professionals, innovators & entrepreneurs that Florida has to offer, where we all come together on a main stage to compete against 50+ teams from around the nation. When you’re the best at what you do, you look to surround yourself with others who are the best at what they do.
At StartupBus you’ll find just those people. The best of the best. Not only does this allow us to promote these individuals to our community, it allows us to promote our region to talent from all over North America. I mean, after-all who wouldn’t want to relocate to or start their next venture in the Sunshine State?.
I was first introduced to StartupBus in 2011 when a few of my friends started telling me that they were about to get on a bus with 30 strangers, drive halfway across the country and create businesses along the way. I thought to myself “They must be crazy.” and in 2015 & 2016 I made the same crazy decision to embark on the road trip of a lifetime. To be fair, it was the best decision I’ve ever made. Since then I’ve made lifelong friends, collected memories that will last forever, gained skills I use in my professional career and my outlook on what can be accomplished in days rather than years is forever changed.
It’s chaos. We’re looking for the individuals who want to build innovative products, break the status quo, and represent Florida in a high-paced environment of long sleepless nights, stressful time commitments and simply ‘getting shit done’. These are essential skills that can take years to develop, but with StartupBus we help to build those habits in days.
