About CEO

Name Viren Doshi

Job background Prior to establishing CatchThatBus, I served as a strategy consultant for a travel company based out of Mumbai. I have also served numerous years, working in Munich and KL with Siemens on technology solutions for major carriers across EMEA.

Story about why you started your business

I founded CatchThatBus together with my co-founder, Ashwin, when we discovered that there was an immense untapped potential in the much-overlooked bus industry.

When trying to buy a bus ticket from KL to Singapore one year, we found the process extremely difficult and cumbersome and wondered, why wasn't it much easier like buying a movie or airlines ticket? Since more people travel by bus than flying, we saw that there was an immense potential for online ticketing in this very fragmented industry.

We believe bus travel is still the most important mass transportation sector, and want to make the experience of bus travel better, and the preferred mode of travel in South East Asia.

Message to Japanese companies or investors

Bus travel is a growing industry in all developing countries and due to the similar issues faced in all countries, this is a global problem as well as opportunity to make the lives of billions of people who travel by bus annually, better.
