StartupBus is run by our Alumni community, consisting of Buspreneurs that had previously participated in our annual competition.

Alumni can volunteer to run all that is StartupBus. When an volunteer of a bus crew successfully fundraise and produce a StartupBus, they will be appointed the legendary title of a "Conductor", who will be the captain and leader of their bus crew and their Buspreneurs.

The best Conductors progress to become Directors of a continental region, with the focus of running the next competition and leading all conductors to success. Senior Directors and Board Members drive strategic development of our organization on the global level.

The Directors.
