StartupBus Roundup

Experience the StartupBus

Follow Thomas Mulready on his journey as he spent 72 hours on the Ohio StartupBus speeding down to Austin, TX, collaborating with complete strangers to conceive, build and launch a new business. Jump aboard as he streamed live video everyday at NOON and 4PM on, and broadcasted live on Western Reserve PBS television each evening at 6:57PM. From the first installment, shot at Cleveland’s West Side Market, to the last video giving results of the finals in Austin, you won’t miss a mile!
