StartupBus is run by the community and a legal entity that protects it, with the founder as its head and chief. The community consists of people that have participated in the annual competition. Alumni of the experience become “buspreneurs” and can become “producers” (including “conductors”) the following year, running all that is StartupBus. Some producers progress into director roles under the appointment of the Global Chief, that focus on driving strategic organisational functions at the continental and global level.
