Shontell, Alyson. "Uber Is Cleverly Controlling Its Stock So It Doesn't End Up Like Facebook". Which business model did Uber emulate? Uber - History Porter's 5 forces Service regulations Initially founded as UberCab by Garret Camp and Travis Kalanick in 2009. Uber initially offered only luxury vehicles, but has since begun offering a lower-market option called UberX which is intended to directly compete with conventional taxicabs. Company partners with independent drivers ( subcontractor basis) and takes a share of each transaction (20%) (fixed commission). Uber currently operates in major cites across 58 countries. The Uber Story! Threat of New Entrants Threat level - Dependent on location: Cities were licenses are capped due to regulation = more protected New York, San Francisco and (some degree) Sydney. However jurisdictions that have deregulated their taxi industry: E.g. UK (2003), Ireland (2000), and Netherlands (1999) - experienced an influx of supply. Dublin Demand has only risen 6% over 1997-2008, while supply has increased by 530% during the same period (Nicholls 2011). Asset light model - easy to replicate No switching costs - no membership requirements. Fierce retaliation from the Taxicab Industry - strikes, marketing campaigns, government lobbying. Improvements in technology Smartphones, social media and GPS navigation devices open the market to novo ride sharing apps (Burbank, Brinckerhoff and Nigro 2012). We know that ride sharing companies are stealing market share directly from the taxi industry. HIGH "Eight-Forces" Analysis What happens when supply remains steady and demand goes up? Price regulations Varies from Jurisdiction - NSW: the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) recommends maximum taxi fares (and fare structures) to the Director-General of Transport who almost always adopts them (Abelson 2009) . The basic fare includes a flag fall fare and distance and time charges. Night time surcharge and booking fees. IPART does not distinguish between peak and off peak periods although there is considerable excess demand for taxis in peak hours and excess supply in off-peak hours (Abelson 2009). Pricing information is widely known – set taxi rates therefore no possibility of price discrimination - increase in BUYER POWER. Power of Buyers Customers do not need the service on a day-to-day basis - Taxis only used in specific circumstances. No alternatives for point to point transportation in this price range. However high bargaining power if there is a large supply of different cabs. No factors to keep them attracted to a single service Switching costs - very low However when there is high barriers to entry-like control then customers often experience low buyer satisfaction Colmar Bruton (2002) found: 38% of respondents in inner Sydney tried to get a taxi in the last 6 months and failed. MEDIUM -> HIGH Identify the critical resources and activities Uber used to add value or cut cost? Rivalry among existing players Competition on costs/margins Very low switching costs No product differentiators - easy to imitate Sydney market: In 2009 there were 5 semi independent networks: - CCN (Cabcharge) 3200 taxis (3400 with subsidiary St. George); - Premier 825 taxis; - Legion 520 taxis; - Manly/RSL taxis 380 taxis. Cabcharge controls over 60% of the taxis on Sydney's streets. Between the Cabcharge, Premier and Legion networks control about 90% of the taxi operators (and taxis) in Sydney. MEDIUM Answer: $380,000. Extra-Credit Time! Regulation The economics literature (Bekken 2007) identifies three main forms of regulation on the taxi industry: quantity (entry regulations), quality of service; and price regulations How Uber Moves Your City Forward with Innovation | Uber Threat of Substitutes Competing in the Network Transportation Industry: Novo ridesharing apps, public transport, livery services (premuim paying

Transcript: Evaluating Entrepreneurs Cristian Salazar 05/01/2020 Uber’s story began in Paris in 2008. Two friends, Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp, were unable to get a cab during a cold winter evening in Paris. Founders The Idea It started as a simple idea: What if you could request a ride from your phone? They brainstormed the idea to create a new company called UberCab. First step What personal qualities did the entrepreneur draw on that contributed to the entrepreneurial idea’s success? Personal Qualities Intelligent Original Imaginative Visionary Crafty Ambitious What was the entrepreneurial idea? The main idea is: a ride-sharing company that empowers anyone to start earning money with their vehicle and enables those needing a lift to quickly and affordably find a ride. The company takes a cut of the fares. The Idea The drivers earn money driving. The clients arrive at their destination easily, fastly and cheaply. How did the entrepreneur access money and resources to fund the business? Access to money In 2007, both men had sold startups they co-founded for large sums. Kalanick sold Red Swoosh to Akamai Technologies for $19 million while Camp sold StumbleUpon to eBay (EBAY) for $75 million. In October 2010, the company received its first major funding $1.25 million What can we learn about this? Simple problems can generate incredible ideas if we are prepared. Conclusion Thank you for your attention.

Uber is able to cater to passenger needs in almost every city, in almost every way. No direct contract between Uber and the drivers. Uber does not offer medical insurance nor damage/collision insurance, but always back them up in situations like the taxi strike and getting back their licenses. Age/ Education attainment/ gender doesn't make any difference in compensation level, it may only result in higher ratings They do not accept anyone with a criminal record or has even failed to pass the drug test. . It all depends on the success of the drivers, some people have started off as drivers and ended up becoming owners of authorized offices. Performance Payoff $250 million to the MENA region, a large portion of it to expansion in Egypt Tens of thousands of jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities across the country. Over 2000 work opportunities for drivers each month in Egypt. Over 40% of the drivers had previously been unemployed prior to joining Uber.

Ratings help to form the basis of relationships. Drivers are under a lot of pressure to offer outstanding services to their customers. 1. There is a dispute on how to classify drivers for Uber. When Uber was first formed and began to offer services, the drivers for the company were treated as independent contractors. White taxi drivers : " Uber and Careem must be suspended in Egypt because they function illegally, as they use private cars whose drivers do not have taxi licences and do not have the financial and legal obligations imposed on taxis. Uber's operations manager in Cairo Abdellatif Waked said Uber is --> "licensed as a technology company in all the countries in which it operates," stressing that they pay taxes and carry commercial registers. 3.

Transcript: One main issue that Uber has not yet addressed is the fact that the Uber drivers are on their cell phones while driving the cab. In order to learn your location the driver must look at their mobile, from a safety perspective, this is a major drawback. Uber tells drivers that drive for more than one service that it is illegal and they will be fired if they continue to do so but in reality it is not illegal and the drive has no right to be fired. Uber Now Although the usual percentage of earnings that a drive would have to pay the company is 20% or lower, Uber has demanded 25% from its drivers in some cities Operation SLOG is a program in which Uber hires contractors to take rides from a competing company called Lyft and urges the Lyft drives to switch services. These contractors will also call in then cancel Lyft rides which compromises Lyft drives making the service less reliable. Driver Behavior Only Drive for Us God View Despite what some people say, Uber may not be one of the most unethical companies currently operating, but even so they are still a very reliable service that helps thousands of people every day Multitasking Drivers People are uncomfortable with how Uber knows your whereabouts Rating System Ethical Issues UberCab was founded in 2009 by Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick. Services and mobile app launched in San Fransisco in 2011, raised $44.5million in the same year. At the end of 2011 changed name from UberCab to Uber. Backround In order to ensure that customers are not treated poorly, customers can review and rate their driver on the Uber app. On the other hand, drivers have the same ability. Drivers can rate riders to ensure that no customers are acting poorly towards drivers. A customer who has repeatedly gotten bad reviews may loose access to the service. Surge Pricing Now Uber operates 60 counties. Worth near $50billion Thousands of drivers. Operation SLOG High Commission Ethical or Not? During a very serious hostage situation during which 2 people were killed and 4 were injured, the people of Sydney, Australia ordered Uber cabs only to find that the fare was quadruple the normal rate Although Uber has been extremely successful, and is a very commonly used service in many cities, it does not have a reputation of being the most ethical company... Uber "Plays Dirty" Recently Uber has been known to partake in some less than moral behavior. Stealing drivers from other companies and tampering with the competition. Throughout Uber's history there have been many alleged cases in which a driver had sexually assaulted a customer or a driver had behaved less than professional. Although Uber says that they do extensive background checks they are still a privately owned company that is not as heavily regulated as other taxi services. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick says "There’s nothing wrong with giving drivers information about a competing service — and paying them to listen to the pitch in the form of a fare." Garrett Camp: Uber Founder

Transcript: Uber was found by two friends called Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick respectively in 2009 in San Francisco, USA. Both men had their own startups before Uber. However, in 2009 Garrett Camp began developing on a prototype of Uber as a side project. By the summer of the same year, Camp has persuaded Travis Kalanick to join Uber. After Kalanick joined, the service was tested in New York in early 2010 using only three cars, and the official launch took place in San Francisco in May. Uber is a web platform which connects the partners (drivers) with the client. This application is available on tablets and smartphones and its function is very simple. The app lets customers know where the nearest Uber vehicle is, and from there, customers can select the specific Uber vehicle of their choice. Within minutes that exact vehicle will be at the customer’s location, ready to whisk them to their desired location. As for the confirmation of the right vehicle of the client, the application sends the details of the driver, such as the name, the type of car and the estimated time of arrival. As for the payment, it is done when the client reaches his destination and is 100% paperless, meaning that the Uber app is connected to the customer’s credit card. Nevertheless, in some cities you can also pay in cash. What started as an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas is now changing the logistical fabric of cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, they use technology to give people what they want, when they want it. For the women and men who drive with Uber, their app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, they help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer. Of the two founders Travis Kalanick is now the CEO of Uber. Uber is Kalanick’s third entrepreneurial venture. Here are 5 lessons in leadership and life that we can learn from the man who is on a warpath to change the way people commute: You will make mistakes; Learn and move forward Do not be afraid to start small A great businesses is one that solves a problem Work towards giving people a better option Roadblocks may slow you down but don’t let them stop you Regarding Uber today, this invention is still used today and at a great extent. More specifically, Uber’s disruptive technology, explosive growth, and constant controversy make it one of the most fascinating companies to emerge over the past years. The eight-year-old company has rocketed to become the highest valued private startup company in the world. Valued by investors at $69 billion, it exceeds the market cap of giants such as General Motors, Ford and Tesla Inc., even though the company has suffered billions in losses in recent years. After Uber was invented in 2009, more ride-hailing services were developed such as the following: Hailo was founded in 2011, is UK based and operates in 16 cities around the world. Hailo is one of the fastest growing ride-hailing services in the UK. GrabTaxi was founded in 2012 and is based in Southeast Asia. GrabTaxi is one of the best apps like Uber to book your ride down Southeast with over 75,000 drivers registered on the network, GrabTaxi has one among the biggest fleets of ride-hailing vehicles. GrabTaxi is available in 30 different cities across 6 different countries in the Southeast Asia. Easy Taxi was founded in 2011 and is operating in 30 countries - 420 cities worldwide. Grabbing over 17 million users worldwide and a taxi fleet of 400,000 taxi drivers make it another great taxi-hailing alternative to Uber. Didi Dache was founded in 2012 and with over 100 million registered users, Didi Dache covers more than 300 cities across China. Although Didi Dache is priced a bit higher as compared to Uber, it is one of the most efficient and reliable cab-hailing service offered in China. LeCab was founded in 2012 and is operating only in France. As Uber is banned in France, LeCab wants to make the most of the situation and take over the ride-hailing market in France’s capital city. With over 70,000 active users and an increasing number of the vehicle fleet, LeCab is fast rising as the best ride-hailing app like Uber in France. BiTaksi was founded in 2013 and is one of the most famous taxi-hailing application in Istanbul. With over 200,000 registered users and over 34,000 taxi drivers, Bitaksi offers the best taxi-hailing service in Istanbul. Moreover, this is one of the few taxi-hailing services to have introduced in-app credit card payment system. On the contrary, the Taxi industry around the world is suffering. Uber may only be a few years old, but in many places there has a disastrous effect on the local taxi industry. For instance, in San Francisco, the city where Uber was firstly launched, Yellow Cab, the largest taxi company in San Francisco is the latest and greatest victim. As the San Francisco Examiner’s Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez (2016) reports, the Yellow Cab will
