Tech Earnings Breakdown: $UBER, $LYFT, $KIND with TechCrunch's Alex Wilhelm | E1845

E1845 • Nov 10, 2023 • 79 mins

TechCrunch's Alex Wilhelm joins Jason to breakdown the latest earnings reports from Uber (4:04), Lyft (24:28), and Nextdoor (44:15). Then, the two dive into WeWork's failed business model (1:01:44), the viability of various careers as AI advances (38:33), and much more!

Key Points

  • VCs are often looking to invest in the archetypal "pirate" founder with a disruptive, take-no-prisoners attitude, which can be a feature or a bug depending on perspective.
  • In a reversal from what was expected a few years ago, physical trades like plumbing and electrical work are seemingly much more secure long-term, as generative AI can already do a significant portion of white-collar jobs, like copywriting and coding.
  • Uber and Lyft's post-COVID divergence, spurred on by Uber Eats popularity during COVID, and Uber's Mobility segment bouncing back as the pandemic wound down.
