"Startupbus" Pacific

Calypso Coaches was proud to provide our new sleepercoach"Optimus" for the very first "Startupbus" Australia. The 3 day trip starting in Sydney and going via Melbourne, Canberra and returning to Sydney has been hailed a great sucess by participants of this unique event. 

The concept is simple.. The results extraordinary.

You take a group of very bright and motivated tech heads on a bus for 3 days. Their goal is to form groups, come up with a new business idea, work out the details/structure, crunch the numbers and pitch the idea at the end of the trip to Potential venture capitalists and investors. (in this case the "Sydstart" conference in Sydney) A daunting task in itself but to do so with an idea just 3 days old (or less) on minimal sleep is impressive. Calypso Coaches offers big "Well done"  to the teams with particular mention of the "People of the sun" group who not only took out the "Startupbus" competition but also won the "peoples choice" award at the Sydstart conference! Their business has already attracted impressive investment funds and is set to do well.

You'll find links to the "Startupbus" facebook page and website on our Facebook page.http://www.facebook.com/coolcoaches


Calypso is proud to have provided coach transport for the upcoming channel 9 series of "When love comes to town".
