You know Uber.
You’re going to want to be here at the start of 2019.
It’s one of the most valuable companies in the world right now.
So what does it do?
What’s its story?
Is it a success story?
Or is it just an interesting ride-sharing service?
We asked a handful of the people behind Uber to share their personal experiences and take us behind the scenes of the ride-hailing giant, in this case, a story about a young driver in Los Angeles who became a symbol for what could be achieved with technology.
“I think that there are a lot of parallels to be drawn between Uber and the rise of Lyft and UberX,” said Justin Mottram, founder and CEO of Uber.
“You have a company that is essentially an app for passengers to get from A to B. You have a platform where you have thousands of people trying to do the same thing.
And then you have a business model that’s built around this kind of technology.”
He says that the tech giant that made Uber into a company and a household name was in fact Uber itself.
“The idea of Uber is so cool,” Mottra said.
“It’s something that we can do that nobody else can.
And you can see this in Silicon Valley right now, which is where the technology is, right?
It’s like, ‘Oh, look at all the cool stuff that’s been happening at Uber, like driverless cars and everything else.’
It’s like a startup, and the way we wanted to go about doing it was to be as aggressive as possible, and have a much bigger footprint, so we were able to grow our business,” he said. “
Mottram said that Uber had the most ambitious growth plan in its history at the time of its acquisition by Google, which he says was a strategic decision.”
It’s like a startup, and the way we wanted to go about doing it was to be as aggressive as possible, and have a much bigger footprint, so we were able to grow our business,” he said.
Mottrams team, with its emphasis on making the most out of technology, was able to expand to over 50 cities.
The company is currently headquartered in Los Feliz.
Uber is in a tough spot right now as the company faces a series of regulatory issues.
In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently voted to take Uber off the air, deeming it too disruptive to its service.
The FCC also announced that it would begin an investigation into Uber’s practices.
But it’s Uber’s international expansion that is causing the company some real problems, and Mottran said the company was not the only company that was trying to tap into the ride sharing market.”
Mottran also said that while Uber has seen some of its drivers fired for their alleged racism, he believes the company has also seen positive things happen for its drivers.””
And then we had some of our international competitors that were also doing that, and we weren’ t doing anything to compete with them.”
Mottran also said that while Uber has seen some of its drivers fired for their alleged racism, he believes the company has also seen positive things happen for its drivers.
“Our drivers have seen a tremendous amount of positive change, a lot more support and appreciation and appreciation for the way they work, and so they’re being treated with respect,” he continued.
“There are no other rideshare companies that are treating people this way, and that’s an awesome thing.
I think that they’ve seen an incredible amount of goodwill from the drivers.”
