The journey to SXSW continues. Yesterday, we watched as a busload of entrepreneurs began a multi-city roadtrip to the South by Southwest Interactive conference where they will debut the startups they form on this four-day excursion. The StartupBus left its San Francisco/Silicon Valley base at 6 am on Tuesday, heading south as the entrepreneurs got to know each other.
On Day 2 of the trip, the teams are hard at work on their products. Ideas brewing as the bus rolls along include: Cerealize, a service that lets you create and customize your own healthy cereals and boxes, Expensiev, a receipt-management system that brings paper receipts into the cloud, and Jeli.co, a location-based plotting tool for storytelling within communities.
Of course, all work and no play would make for dull entrepreneurs, so wait for the end of the video to see the “buspreneurs” letting loose a bit, and taking a break from the bus at Gangplank, a collaborative workspace in Chandler, Ariz.
This leg of the journey covers Indio, California to Las Cruces, New Mexico. The next stop will be at Rackspace in San Antonio, and TechCrunchTV will have more updates on the StartupBus teams until they make it to Austin on Friday. Keep watching!
