BUStling: Startups Hustle to Build New Products on Bus Ride to SXSW

Florida - BumperCrop (www.bumpercrop.co/) - an online marketplace for locally-grown crops for neighborhoods.
New York - Adventeur (adventeur.co/) - A mobile app that helps you choose your own adventure to explore your city. New events and ideas nearby will be presented to you. Premium offering. Partner with local businesses for exclusive events.

New York - Happstr (happstr.com) - Mobile app to check-in when you're happy and share it with your friends/network. It uses a global index heat map to drive you to happy places, businesses, cities, etc.
