Teams from Silicon Valley and New York won the South by Southwest Startup Bus competition. Six busloads of tech startups that drove to the SXSW festival in Austin, TX from across the country participated in the competition, which was won by TripMedi and WalkIN.
The competition involved designing a prototype and website during the three-day bus ride. The Silicon Valley startup WalkIN developed mobile phone app with an alert feature that helps diners avoid waiting in long lines.
