At Aviary, we love being involved in the vibrant and growing NYC tech startup scene. This November, we hosted Startup Bus Accelerate, a kickoff event for the North East Startup Bus team. If you're unfamiliar, Startup Bus is a mobile hackathon in the most literal sense -- teams take buses from various cities throughout North America and hack all the way to SXSW. It's a fun, exhilarating event that flowers ingenuity and teamwork.
This kickoff event, organized by North East bus leaders Nate Cooper and Alice Ng, brought together all star developers, designers, and hustlers to network, share past glories, and contemplate future challenges. The event featured speeches by Aviary's lead API Evangelist, Ari Fuchs, as well as several Startup Bus veterans.
