54 hours to develop a company from an idea. Does that sound crazy? Maybe, but it has been done. You could do it by signing up for Startup Weekend Bloomington!
What exactly is Startup Weekend? Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, biz devs, and startup enthusiasts come together and share their startup ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups. Startup Weekend is a global event that happens throughout the year. We’re very lucky to have one right here in Bloomington!
Startup Weekend Bloomington will take place November 15th-17th at City Hall-Showers Building. The event kicks off Friday at 5:30pm with a pitch session, followed by team formation, and then it’s time to get to work for the rest of the weekend. Sunday, the event concludes with all teams presenting their final product to a panel of judges.
This is a great way to get your startup idea out in the open, have extra hands, eyes, and minds all working together to make it a reality.
Register now for a great weekend where you could potentially find that co-founder you’ve been searching for, plug-in to the startup scene here in Bloomington, find valuable resources and make great connections, while not worrying about finding a time to eat, because Startup Weekend Bloomington will provide SEVEN meals for you!
We’ll see you next weekend!

Back in April we announced the launch of Earbits mobile experience for Android. We are excited to announce Earbits has launched the iOS mobile experience! Now both Android and iOS users are able to enjoy Earbits.
Earbits mobile experience is available worldwide. Users are able to combine their playlists with songs from over 12,000 high quality indie artists without interruption from those pesky commercials. Users possess on-demand play options and do not have to worry about usage or skip restrictions, like other mobile music streaming apps.
Once users install the app, Earbits recommends channels based on existing music stored on the mobile device. Earbits blends user’s music with 380 commercial free channels allowing users to discover the world’s best indie music seamlessly. Earbits also allows users to flips back and forth between Earbits’ music and the music stored on the device.
Just like the Earbits web experience and the Android app, iOS users are also able to earn Groovies for every artist-friendly action. Groovies can be redeemed for access to on-demand songs and other rewards. Groovies can be earned by listeners supporting their favorite artists by recommending them to friends via Facebook, tweeting about bands, or joining artist’s email lists.

Just a few days ago one of our Sprouts released the news of a huge partnership! PathWrangler has partnered with Indy based tech company Formstack. This partnership is sure to make the lives of tour operators easier.
PathWrangler is a platform for creating, planning, managing, and sharing your trips. They simplify the planning that goes into group adventure travel. Now with the partnership between PathWrangler and Formstack- the process is even easier.
Formstack allows users to create, customize, brand, and launch forms online in the matter of seconds. They now solve problems that many entities face when trying to collect all the necessary personal data associated with traveling. You no longer have to deal with downloading attachments, printing them off, filling them out and scanning them back to tour operators. Now within PathWrangler’s dashboard users can host forms for their clients to fill out and submit right there. This saves time and money!
Congrats on the new partnership! Tour operators everywhere send their gratitude!
