Counterattack: Four Uber Rivals Team Up Against TNC Giant

Posted on December 4, 2015


Uber is raising $2.1 billion in new private equity funding at a whopping $62 billion valuation. For context, that’s higher than the market cap of General Motors, and it was done at fairly standard terms (1x liquidation preference, no “ratchets”).
