WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU PUT 30 STRANGERS ON A BUS AND GIVE THEM
72 HOURS TO CONCEIVE, BUILD & LAUNCH A STARTUP?
THE RIDE OF A LIFETIME.

For the second year in a row Ohio will be hosting the MakerBus!

The MakerBus is a unique spin on the StartupBus formula. Teams are required to actually build physical prototypes of their products on the road. We’re not going to sugarcoat it, the ride to New Orleans will be tough. We’ll be stopping at makerspaces all the way down. We’ll tell you what equipment they have but we won’t tell you where they are. You’re not going to get much sleep and you might have to fight people off to use the outlet for your soldering iron. You’ll be pushed far past your limits and will go through all the feels, but it’ll all be worth it when you find greatness on the other side.

The maker bus will be packed with a mix of the best makers, designers, business developers, and software gurus. Think you have what it takes? Apply Now!
