What are the common factors between Uber and Didi as two major market disrupters? I believe that Uber and its innovative digital technology that allowed them to disrupt the taxi industry. Uber works because of its peer-to-peer business model running on a digital platform. This means that Uber is connecting people who offer a service with people who have a need. Didi has inked partnerships with some of the big names in autonomous vehicle technology, including Google sibling Waymo and General Motors, which is one of its investors. Because of economics, the future of the rideshare industry may depend on self-driving vehicles. Paying drivers to work as independent contractors and maintain their own vehicles is expensive. Self- driving cars would allow a company to offer service directly and gain economic benefits from bulk purchases of vehicles, fuel, maintenance, and insurance.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
