FlixBus started up 2013 in Germany, after the deregulation of the national market. Due to an innovative business model and cooperation with regional bus companies, FlixBus was able to run a nationwide network within months of its launch. By combining entrepreneurial spirit and innovative technology with a traditional SME industry, FlixBus established a completely new means of transport and simply made buses cool again. In 2015, as the clear market leader in Germany, FlixBus started to globalise its business model by launching domestic networks in France, the Netherlands and Italy as well as cross-border service to Scandinavia. In 2016, the former startup plans to expand to Central and Eastern Europe, to the UK and Spain. From the headquarters in Munich, Berlin, Paris, Zagreb and Milan, FlixBus is now operating green buses in 18 European countries and transported around 20 million passengers last year. The globalisation is backed by US growth investor General Atlantic, Holtzbrinck Ventures, Daimler Mobility Services, UnternehmerTUM Fonds and Cherry Ventures.
