Inspirational Story Of Uber

Hello friends, today I am going to discuss about a global transportation company - Uber. Uber has made the transportation system easier than before. Uber is now providing its service in more than 600 cities. And very few people know that Uber has got self driving as well as helicopter services too. This company provides service related to food and drinks too. Let's get to the beginning of the story of Uber. 

About 9 years ago, a man named Garett Camp had booked a cab before the New Year's Day by spending 800 dollars. That is when he thought about the idea of sharing a vehicle. That would definitely cost less for each one who shared. This idea along with an incident led to the the start of Uber. 

The incident was that one evening, in France, Garett Camp and his friend Travis Kalanick were waiting for a taxi outside while it was snowing. But unfortunately, they didn't get any. Keeping this discomfort in mind, they opened up a company named Uber. Both of them talked to their friends and decided upon to have a start up. Garett Camp was then the co-founder of Stumbleupon company which he resigned. Travis Kalanick also sold his startup named Red Swoosh at 19 million dollars.

Both set to work upon the new company and launched the beta version of Uber in 2010. The first employee of Uber company was Ryan Graves who joined as general manager and later became the CEO of the company. In 2011, the company launched its official application in San Francisco. However the service didn't become popular because the price of black cabs were fifteen times more than the normal ones. The name 'Uber cab' existed till 2011. But then, it changed to 'Uber'. 
After working hard for a year Uber made changes in its strategies.

In July 2012, a strategy named Uber X was launched where any willing person could work for Uber with his or her personal cab. Gradually with this, the business expanded to 35 cities. In July 2014, Uber started the helicopter service from New York city to Hampton for 3000 dollars. This service was named Uber Chopper. The next month in August 2014, the company launched Uber pool service.  
Soon, it started another service named Uber eats. It was an online food ordering service. These strategies made the expansion of business easier. 

In March 2015, with the help of a collaboration, Uber started its luxury car service in Singapore. This included Cara like Lamborghini. Later, Uber established a robotics department and launched self driving car service. And today Uber is spread in almost 83 countries and 633 cities.
However, Uber faced many challenges along the way. 

The strong partnership of the two friends and their hard work is what led it to become successful today.
