As Uber’s founder and CEO, Travis Kalanick is not only disrupting an entrenched industry but also reinventing urban transportation as we know it.

In 2010, entrepreneur and angel investor Travis Kalanick, with his co-­founder Garrett Camp, took a niche product ­­— Uber —­ and turned it into a global platform that has transformed the way we move around our cities.

In 68 countries and 360 cities, riders can push a button and get a ride and drivers have a flexible, independent way to make money. With big investments in China, India, carpooling, self-driving cars and logistics,­ Uber’s future promises to be as headline-­grabbing as its past, continuing to reinvent urban transportation as we know it.
