What it Takes to Make an Uber

KCBS Radio In Depth
Thursday, October 3rd
Silicon Valley is known for producing companies that move fast and break things, but few have moved faster or broken more things than ride hailing service Uber, a company whose every success has also been accompanied by disruption, dislocation and controversy. 

In this edition of KCBS In Depth we discuss the man largely responsible for shaping Uber’s distinctive approach to business during its formative years: Uber’s founder and former CEO Travis Kalanick.

Along the way we try to answer the question: Can you create a great company without being a jerk? 

Guest: New York Times technology reporter Mike Isaac. His new book is “Super Pumped: the Battle for Uber." 

Host: KCBS reporter Keith Menconi
