The Louisiana Startup Bus is on a roll. After stops in Shreveport, Lafayette, New Orleans, and a Startup Bus party in Baton Rouge involving Startup buses from six other cities, the Louisiana Bus has entered the final stretch on its way to SXSW.
Terry Jones,the former buspreneur that led the effort to land the Louisiana bus and current conductor of the bus, tells SBN that the “buspreneurs are busy cranking on building working prototypes and launching their startups.”
Although the new companies have not yet been revealed (hopefully we will have details this afternoon), one of the startups has emerged as an early favorite, Clrme.com. Clrme’s landing page says “Get a fresh perspective on your life using private feedback from people you know. Ready to be honest? Share clrme & find out what they really think.” So, some sort of private feedback platform for individuals? We will let you know as we find out more.
These may or may not be other companies on the bus:
Monamee- Create a fun way for kids to interact with brands on a mobile platform
CashTag – Incentivize hashtag usage for brands
Partingo- a mobile sports bingo app that will work across all mobile platforms. Partingo is an interactive app that you play during your favorite sporting event. Follow along with the live plays of the sporting event and tag your bingo block accordingly. Typical bingo rules apply.
