About this event

Apply for your seat on the bus today at

StartupBus is the legendary 5-day tech entrepreneurship bootcamp and startup competition - on a road trip on buses - featured on TechCrunch, TIME, NBC News and even an entire podcast series on StartUp, now in its 10th glorious year.

Refreshingly, as a hackathon, we keep it simple. There are no rules except one: You simply need to submit a working tech product that is launched and used by the public within the first 3 days on the bus. There are no restrictive themes, and you can employ whatever resources you can hack with, as long as everything was made from scratch.

You will board one of our 7 buses across North America, departing from cities such as New York, San Francisco, Tampa, and more. You will pitch your idea and your skills to a bus full of top tech talents - developers, designers, and entrepreneurs - and then form your teams on the bus. You will hack together for 3 days, while stopping by many awesome tech communities, cool spots, beautiful places, and a few suprises along the way.

All buses converge in New Orleans, where you will face off teams from all over the world. For 2 days, you will pitch your way to the top, and learn the best strategies to building your dream startup from real world investors, founders, and StartupBus alumni.

Our next buses are departing on July 24. Get your ticket now and don't miss the once-in-a-lifetime adventure to make it in the tech world!
