The FounderBus program is a roadtrip for entrepreneurs in-the-making, with participants travelling through Europe – building networks and learning new business skills along the way. And tonight all founders, investors, businesses, internet media outlets and aspiring entrepreneurs are invited to a networking event to kick off the road trip, starting at 7:30pm at the You Is Now headquarters. You Is Now is the innovation platform from ImmobilienScout24 and is a supporter of both the event and the tour.
"Pitch Me!" and co-founder speed-dating
There will also be a screening of the film “Pitch Me!” that was made on the FounderBus the previous year, along with a cofounder speed-dating session, so you could just find your partner in crime at the event.
In the next couple of weeks, the 25 entrepreneurs that will travel on the FounderBus tour will be chosen from a pool of over 300 applicants. They'll travel through Germany all the way to France, forming four to six teams to develop a startup idea and finishing by pitching their startup at the LeWeb Startup Competition jury. Along the way, they’ll attend expert run seminars and network with experts and founders in cities across Europe.
Sebastian Sielmann, the founder and Director of FounderBus, says “The applicants are very promising – we have chosen different people, from UX specialists to designers and young visionaries and experienced founders. It's an explosive mix with enormous creative potential."
