It’s been a long day aboard the StartupBus! Today, we followed our New York buspreneurs to New Orleans, where four of the seven StartupBuses — East Coast, Southeast, Midwest, and Alumni — convened on the second night of their 72-hour hackathon-on-a-bus adventure.
During crunch time on Tuesday morning, team Deliverish met Alexei Novitzky as he was painting a BriefSkate, a skateboard with a built-in briefcase that he invented and patented while in college and is now hoping to launch as a business during StartupBus. His teammates, Darin Lewis and Spencer Muratides, were hard at work contacting suppliers across the country for board prototypes in the making.
The StartupBus journey continues. Follow the adventure on Twitter with the hashtag #StartupBus to keep track of the teams and their progress!
