Tomorrow morning, Sarah Rich and I head out on a roadtrip through the south in search of innovative startups across the region. From Washington, we're heading first to Richmond, racing down to Savannah, then up to Chattanooga, over to Shreveport, and finishing up in New Orleans next weekend. We're going to be posting a lot from the road, and there are multiple ways to follow us. Here's how:

  • Come back to the Startup Nation special report homepage. That'll contain our posts in an easy-to-digest format, along with posts from Richard Florida and others.
  • Follow the #startupsouth hashtag and us on Twitter (@alexismadrigal, @sarahrich).
  • Track our progress on this hacked Google Map. A bonus there is that it contains a bunch of "creation stories" from entrepreneurs all over the southeast.
  • Peruse our road triphotos on Instagram (our user names are: alexismadrigal, sarahrich).

Wish us luck. We're really excited about the companies and innovation that we're hearing about. And, FYI, I intend to eat all the okra in the south.
