Picture this: a group of "buspreneurs" convene on a bus equipped with laptops and just three days to create a startup company. That is what happened when the area's best hackers, hustlers and hipsters got on the Midwest StartupBus. They also made stops in Nashville, Tenn., and Fort Smith, Ark., along the way.

KCPT's Caitlin Cress went along for the ride, which began right here in Kansas City on March 2.

Guest:

  • Caitlin Cress, reporter at the Hale Center for Journalism at KCPT
