Created an app to make it easier to get around… 15 million rides per day! Crazy. If you can solve ride sharing, solving the cultural problems should be achievable as well.
I don’t think Uber gets enough credit for the good in it’s culture. In each of the African countries I visit I use Uber. It’s the safest option.
Often it’s providing work for refugees that are un-hirable due to xenophobia. I actually sat down and recorded an interview with a Burundian refugee in Cape Town who was unable to get work, but now drives and takes computer classes. Uber pioneers equal opportunity work in parts of the world that are burdened by years of tribalism and racism. That’s fundamental Uber’s culture.
