Bus helps entrepreneurs to start up

Nov 08 2013 15:46
Cape Town - A group of entrepreneurs are getting a chance to travel with the StartupBus, which will be rolling through cities like Harare, Johannesburg and Cape Town from November 17 to 21 2013.

Out of over 200 applicants, 15 African and 15 international entrepreneurs were chosen to participate in this unique journey and will be accompanied by 10 mentors.

The opening event will take place at the HyperCube Hub Harare on November 17.

It will be followed by visits to the HUB Johannesburg, the Branson Centre and Seed Engine in Johannesburg as well as Bandwidth Barn and the Hubspace in Cape Town.

On November 22, the "Buspreneurs" will join the Global Entrepreneurship Week with over 300 conference participants.

The meetings with successful entrepreneurs and mentors off the bus and the teamwork "on the road" will help the StartupBus participants to develop their own innovative startup ideas.

Ultimately they will pitch in front of a jury at the final event in Cape Town.
