Before Uber, Travis built two companies on peer to peer technology and established his hard earned reputation as a risk taker. With Uber, he’s taken it to the next level.
Co-Founder and CEO
Built the largest privately held tech company in the world with a valuation of over $65 billion, all while revolutionizing transportation and outcompeting our challengers. Uber is used over 40 million times a month and has become a fundamental tech product of our time.
Building on his previous peer to peer experience, Red Swoosh raised millions to create a closed P2P network for transferring large media files. He hustled the project, worked without a salary for years, and ultimately sold it for nearly $20 million.
He helped build an enormous multimedia search engine and peer to peer file sharing service revolutionary enough to get investment from a former president of Disney and fearless enough to fight off $250 billion in copyright lawsuits.
