Can you design and open a business in 72 hours?
The people at www.StartupBus.com think you can.
Actually they think many people can. And since it’s already been done before, the fact is, you can build and launch a business in less than 72 hours!
In what seems to be the most awesome promotional event for a trade show that I’ve ever encountered, StartupBus is arranging for buses full of entrepreneurs leaving from multiple cities across the United States, headed for the SxSW trade show in Austin, Texas with a single challenge.
In coordination with the other people on the bus, come up with an idea for a new business, write the code and have the business open for trade by the time the bus arrives at the trade show… in 72 hours.
For guys like me that thrive on innovation this seems like a dream come true type of opportunity.
Deadlines are wonderful things.
Humans have an amazing capability to rise to a challenge. To work as teams when necessary. To focus and get a job done.
Observe any community that has been threatened by an oncoming flood. The people in the individual communities come together and pack sandbags, all night long, no mention of compensation whatsoever, and they just do it because they understand the power of the team and they have a white-hot desire to succeed.
Disregard what you see on reality television. Those programs not only focus on the negative, the opportunities for negative events to arise are often written into the script.
In reality, when the chips are down, people can come together and accomplish a worthy goal.
Do you think you have what it takes to get a business together in 72 hours with total strangers on a bus?
So if these guys can get a business up and running in 72 hours, the real question is, what’s taking you so long to get your business idea off the ground?
