StartupBus UK 2016 – Direct behind-the-scenes info

I’m fortunate to participate in StartupBus UK 2016 – currently we are in Belgium.

Each of four busses – from four different countries – carries 30 hackers/developers, who have 72 hours to come up with an idea, form a team and get ready to demo a real product to a panel of judges & investors.

Our bus left London, UK early morning Sept 2, 2016, and will arrive in Cologne, Germany. Semi-finals are held Sept 5th and the finalists go on to present to the Pirate Summit Sept 6, 2016.

The following information isn’t public yet – so here is the first behind-the-scenes look at what the hacker teams have been developing the last 65 hours.
