It was announced yesterday that Uber, the platform that allows users to connect with drivers closed a further $1.2 billion in funding. This funding in particular, according to a statement put out by Uber’s founder, Travis Kalanick will be used to fund growth within the Asia Pacific region.
The list of Uber’s enemies is a long one. It includes everyone from politicians to taxi lobbyists and the general public to its own drivers. I have been saying on quite a regular basis in the last couple of months that a war is brewing in the transport market.
