A team of entrepreneurs on the Louisiana StartupBus was one of eight finalists in a contest related to the South By Southwest technology conference in Austin, Texas.
The Scoringo team includes Stuart Adams, Natalie Noel, Jarvis Brown, Jeff Pellegrin, Andrew Bursavich, and Tommy Talley. Their idea is a skill-based, interactive gaming platform that will initially focus on sporting events. Users will compete directly against the game and their friends.
The StartupBus is a multicity road trip where participants try to develop a business before arriving in Austin for the conference. Sixty teams competed. The eight finalists present their business ideas to a set of judges, and the winner receives venture capital funding.
