Travis Early Life

He was born in Los Angeles, California on August 6, 1976. Kalanick was raised in a Los Angeles suburb. He developed an early interest in computers and by the time he was in middle school, he had mastered the art of writing computer code. He attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to study computer engineering. But he left in 1998 to work with some of his UCLA colleagues to form the start-up company Scour, Inc. It was one of the first dot-com businesses to make it possible for consumers to exchange movies and music online. It also provided an Internet search engine and file-sharing services. Despite the fact that the recording and motion picture industries both filed lawsuits against the business for copyright infringement, its services swiftly gained popularity. In 2000, Scour finally declared bankruptcy and later sold over all of its assets.

Kalanick Career

Travis’s career began when he first developed Scour. Following its collapse, in order to recover from the bankruptcy, Kalanick established Red Swoosh in 2001. It was a different company that specialized in file-sharing technology. After Red Swoosh attracted a number of notable corporate clients, Kalanick was able to sell the business to Akamai Technologies in 2007 for just under $19 million. After that, he was an active “angel investor”, providing capital for promising start-ups. It was until he co-founded and launched Uber with Garrett Camp in 2009. Uber was based in San Francisco. The business quickly grew into a behemoth. It initially started off with just three rental automobiles available and eventually entered several foreign countries by 2012. Three years later, Uber was present in more than 360 cities and 66 nations. Uber started a motorbike taxi service named “UberMOTO” in many Asian cities in 2016 in addition to automobile services. It was revealed in December 2016 that Kalanick would join the economic advisory board for President-elect Donald Trump. The information caused criticism of Uber, particularly after Trump issued a divisive immigration ban. Eventually, Kalanick left the forum in February 2017. He was forced to step down as CEO of Uber in June 2017. This was the result of a string of scandals that had plagued the firm for more than a year.
