FounderBus is the ultimate 21st century road trip. An experiment. An entrepreneurial endeavour. An insane competition. A special experience. A gate to a fantastic network. In short: Something you should participate in.

Going on Founderbus is a chance to pitch on stage at LeWeb to leading investors. It’ll be an invaluable adventure that also provides you with skills and a people network to work with in the future. The road trip will be an exciting opportunity to have fun, develop a prototype, and interact with entrepreneurial minded talents from all over the UK!

Applications close on the 1st November 2012. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed in mid-November, and offers will be given within 2 days of the interview.

What is the recruiting process like?

The recruiting process is split into two rounds: In the first round you apply via Enternships with your details, application route (business or technology), CV and short motivational statement. If you make it to the second round, then there will be an interview in person or via skype going into more details about your skills, experience and motivation.

What is the estimated cost of the trip?

There is a 100 GBP participation fee that helps with transportation and venue costs. Accommodation and food might or might not be included – we are still working on this. The ticket to LeWeb ist not included, but there is a student version.

Travel, learn and create

At every stop during the FounderBus tour you will take part in workshops run by well-known industry experts and get to know them personally at dinner and drinks afterwards. The workshops will cover topics such as Ideation, Marketing, Design and Fundraising.
