Launch Festival interview

4 Mar, 2014

Calcanis and Kalanick have their first interview in four years, talking about Uber’s expansion plans, and a new feature of a push notification to let customers know when surge pricing periods are about to end. Kalanick says Uber now provides more than half the total rides in San Francisco, although he doesn’t give specific numbers. Kalanick talks about being an entrepreneur:

You’re afraid of failure, you do the best you can, but you really need to have the perseverance, the stamina, the hard core, to just make it through
