Our Uber speakers & talks

How to change the world, one partner at a time

Brooks Entwistle, Uber Chief Business Officer 

Brooks serves as Chief Business Officer International for Uber, responsible for business development and the firm’s relationships across Asia Pacific, EMEA and Latin America. In this talk he'll be talking about how Uber started out to solve a simple problem: the need to get from A to B safely, reliably and affordably. Eight years and ten billion trips later, Uber has evolved into something so much more than pushing a button and getting a ride. With a long term vision of becoming a multi-modal mobility platform, Uber’s technology is unlocking economic, social and environmental change in over 600 cities around the world, and is just getting started. Partnerships have never been more critical to realizing this platform strategy; and ultimately partnerships, coupled with incredible products, are the only way to meaningfully solve some of the world’s toughest problems.
