The Taxi Industry Can Innovate, Too

Posted on February 13th, 2015 (0 Comments)

For the most part, Uber has been a media and investor darling (recent investments value the company in excess of $40BN). And while I have been a fan of Uber, there are cracks to be exploited and it’s too early to count the taxi industry out. In particular, a key reason for Uber’s success has been creatively exploiting a regulatory loophole. One simple step, deregulation, can wreak havoc on Uber’s valuation.

Please check out my latest piece for the Harvard Business Review which gives pause to the Uber mania and makes one wonder, “is Uber’s valuation bloated?”

As always, thank you for reading my blog!
