Two vehicles from StartupBus North America are stopping off in Northwest Arkansas on their way to South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
The fifth annual contest will kick off soon, and buses of more than 60 team members from Kansas City and New York will camp in Fort Smith on March 3 and convene at Apple Blossom Brewing Co. in Fayetteville on March 4, at 8 a.m.
Attendees can be the first to hear the contestants’ pitches. The event is free, and breakfast will be provided.
Sponsors for the event include the ARK Challenge, Startup Junkie Consulting, Innovate Arkansas and Arkansas Startup Weekend.
