StartupBus North America turns five this year and they’re making a stop at Innovation Depot on Sunday, March 2nd at 2 p.m. It will be the first time one of the annual rolling incubators of “buspreneurs” makes a stop in Birmingham on its way to the SXSW Interactive conference.
The South bus will have originated in Nashville, TN and will stop in Chattanooga before its arrival. It will then continue to Memphis, TN; Jackson, MS; Baton Rogue, LA; and Houston, TX; before arriving at its final destination in San Antonio.
Teams on the bus will get off and work on their ideas for an hour or so before they continue on their 3-day, pressure-filled journey to SXSW. According to a status update to TechBirmingham’s fan page on Facebook, locals “are invited to come meet them, maybe listen to their pitch, or be a mentor.”
