What do you get when you put 30 strangers on a bus and give them 72 hours to conceive, build and launch a startup?

The ride of a lifetime.

This summer the best and the brightest will come together to compete in the most epic competition the Americas has ever seen – combing the magic of a hackathon and a road trip to create the ultimate adventure on wheels.

For the first time since 2012, we have a bus departing from Las Vegas. Join us, go head to head with buses from 9 other cities to see who can create the most innovative business. Once we arrive in New Orleans, you’ll get the chance to make your final pitch to the tech executives attending the Collision Conference and New Orleans Jazz Festival.*

The ride to New Orleans will be tough. We’ll be stopping in cities around the US, which will be revealed along the way. You’re not going to get much sleep and you may end up participating in a brawl over device chargers. You’ll be pushed past your limits and will go through all the feels. But it’ll be worth it when you reach your goals and find the finish line.

We can promise you that the few, the proud and brave ones who are selected to join our elite crew will leave with the experience of a lifetime, a new group of close friends and business partners, a whole new perception of what’s possible and plenty of tales from the trenches.

So, what are you waiting for? Apply Now for the chance to join the most exclusive community in tech and see if you have what it takes to hit the pedal to the metal.

See you on the other side!
