It will be interesting to see how many more Uber-like companies are coming and how they are doing 10 years from now.
"In March 2009, Uber was born. Over the next few years, the company became not just a disruptive, controversial transportation company, but a model for dozens of venture-funded companies. Its name became a shorthand for this new kind of business: Uber for laundry; Uber for groceries; Uber for dog walking; Uber for (checks notes) cookies. Larger transformations swirled around—the gig economy, the on-demand economy—but the trend was most easily summed up by the way so many starry-eyed founders pitched their company: Uber for X."
Lots of great questions are asked here.
".....venture capitalists have poured $672 million combined into Wag and Rover!—but the consumer impact is small..... It’s not hard to look around the world and see all those zeroes of capital going into dog-walking companies and wonder: Is this really the best and highest use of the Silicon Valley innovation ecosystem?"
What Uber for X companies have you used? Which did you like or dislike?
