Jochen Engert, Founder and CEO of FlixBus, will join us at the EU-Startups Summit on May 12-13 in Barcelona!

On May 12-13 we’ll finally celebrate the in-person comeback of our annual EU-Startups Summit – connecting 1,600+ of Europe’s smartest founders, startup enthusiasts and investors! The 2-day event will provide great opportunities for networking, inspiration and learning, and we’ll also have an exciting pitch competition.

Today, we’re super excited to introduce our next speaker highlight: FlixBus founder and CEO Jochen Engert will join us at this year’s EU-Startups Summit!

Disrupting long-distance travel since 2013, FlixBus is a unicorn startup and a leader in the European mobility sector, offering fresh alternatives for convenient, affordable and environmentally friendly travel. The fast-growing company quickly established itself as Europe’s largest long-distance bus network and launched the first green long-distance train service in 2018. FlixMobility takes part in the recently started research project HyFleet together with its partners Freudenberg Fuel Cell e-Power Systems and ZF Friedrichshafen AG. Together they work on the development of a high-performance fuel cell system to completely replace conventional diesel drives and reach carbon neutrality

The Munich-based unicorn now has an ever-expanding network of over 400k daily connections to 2.5k destinations in 36 countries. Since 2013, FlixBus has given over 100 million people a new way to travel across Europe, has raised over €1 billion in funding and has been growing a team of more than 3,000 employees as part of the mission to bring smart and green mobility to everyone. 

Jochen is the Co-founder and CEO of FlixBus, and has been leading the company’s fast-paced growth as it has taken the European mobility sector by storm. At the EU-Startups Summit, Jochen will join us for a fireside chat, sharing insights from his entrepreneurial journey and the impressive growth story of Flixbus.
