The Uberfication of Everything?’ with Simon Rossi, Uber
Founded in San Francisco in March 2009, and recently valued at over $18 billion, Uber’s disruptive force has already bitten off 10% off Australia’s taxi industry in less than two years. Its controversial service, banned in some countries, still technically illegal under Western Australia laws, has become the poster child for ‘convenience tech’.
How have they done it? What other industries are ripe for such ‘digital disruption’? Is it yours? Can traditional business models adapt, or will they die?
Join us for breakfast and a fascinating discussion with Simon Rossi, Australian General Manager of Uber.
Simon is an Australian with corporate experience in Melbourne, London and San Francisco, having worked with Vodafone, Melbourne IT and Yammer before joining Uber in November 2013.
