Travis Kalanick

61

Co-Founder & CEO, Uber

I think what people miss about what Uber is, is that there?s a lot of math and a lot of technology that goes into making it so that when you hit a button, a car appears.

Travis Kalanick is a successful entrepreneur in the areas of consumer internet, transportation, and enterprise content delivery. His most recent company, Uber, an on-demand black car service, seeks to be ?Everyone?s Private Driver? by bringing disruptive technology and business innovation to urban transportation challenges. Prior to Uber, Travis founded Red Swoosh, an enterprise content delivery company that he sold to Akamai Technologies in 2007.
