Travis is CO-FOUNDER & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER of uber:uber

Uber is evolving the way the world moves. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through our apps, we make cities more accessible, opening up more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers. From our founding in 2009 to our launches in over 35 cities today, Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer.

Whether it’s founding the world’s first P2P search engine, or developing the premier enterprise content delivery system, Travis believes that every problem has a solution. You just have to be creative enough to find it. He’s guided the company from a niche market in San Francisco to its global presence today. Along the way, Travis has actively invested in and advised other passionate startup entrepreneurs. Somehow, he’s also managed to rack up the second highest Wii Tennis score in the world. Game, set, match.

Uber lost $708 million in 6 months, but its CEO/founder is worth billions. Is Silicon Valley a pyramid scheme? https://t.co/QZv8tT6EX2 (http://twitter.com/Salon/status/872392846300655618?s=17)
