StartupBus is run by the alumni community. The community consists of people that have participated in the annual competition.
Alumni of the experience become Buspreneurs, which can then volunteer to become Producers the following competition, running all that is StartupBus.
When a Producer has successfully fundraised and produced a bus, they become a legendary... (wait for it...) Conductor (!!!) the moment they step upon their bus.
The best Conductors progress into director roles, under the appointment of the Board, and focus on driving strategic organizational functions at the continental and global level.
