It’s going to be a fun and creative journey taking in some great locations as it weaves it’s way to the gorgeous beaches of Far South Coast NSW, and a highly exciting StartUp event (see full event info and useful links later in this post). And as a special treat, the Birds Nest crew are offering a tour of their premises for the bus-trippers – what they have achieved is awesome.
On arrival in Merimbula, bus-trippers will enjoy keynote speeches from Federal Minister for Defence Materiel, The Hon. Dr Mike Kelly AM MP, and Bird’s Nest online fashion success story, Jane Cay, before getting stuck into the main action – working on turning start up pitches and concepts into fantastic business ideas with like-minded people. Book your ticket now!
Australia’s first ever Start Up Bus will be Captained by none other than Marc Englaro (Sydney Angels, InsightfulCRM ), a veteran of the Sydney StartUp scene.
Be part of history in the making, be on Australia’s inaugural start up bus and who knows, maybe come up with the killer idea? The itinerary for this fantastic and fun entrepreneurial escapade is as follows.

For those of you who may not know, the StartUp Bus idea was originally started in the US last year with a bunch of Aussie entrepreneurs – refer here – http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/geeks-get-ticket-to-ride-on-bus-of-startup-dreams-20120520-1yz27.html)
