about this episode

It almost goes without saying that Uber has been one of the most successful startups of the past 5 years: disrupting transportation infrastructure around the country, making better-than-expected weekly revenues, and ushering in a suite of on-demand companies in its wake. “Uber for ______” is now its own category. When Jason sat down with cofounder and CEO Travis Kalanick they looked at what’s ahead for the company. From its expansion plans, concerns over high periods of surge pricing to the announcement that customers will now be notified when surge periods have ended. Their last interview was in 2010. So much has changed. Don’t miss this incredible chat from the 2014 LAUNCH Festival stage.
