Concern about Uber Business

Aug 30, 2018 22 Comments

I just realized that Uber doesn’t have a dominant big market. Is it possible that DIDI will massive subsidize rides in Australia to gain market share from Uber as it has cash and a big source of revenue from China.

So it’s like DIDI will utilize its profit to eat the pie from Uber little by little ? Just wondering if this is likely?

  • Didi won’t succeed outside China, can you imagine Didi invest in safety? The cost of fatality is too small so they won’t bother, but it will ruin its business in other countries, this is just one of many mindsets any Chinese companies have. Everything is different outside China, not everything is about money

    • Debate with logic if you disagree, it’s not cool to throw out shit without any ground, as someone lived there for 20+ years, I know what Im talking about, if it’s koolaid, it’s my own

    IMO, if Google is able to launch Waymo(carpool) at scale then it is likely to gain market share ..I’ve always been skeptical about Uber/lyft business model specially when it comes to making profit.

      It’s going to take years for self driving cars to navigate together with human driven cars. Besides, surroundings play a critical role so it’s not granted it will be available everywhere

    Uber will make enough cash from IPO to sustain in Australia

      But any market share it gains from Uber, itself owns 80% and given back Uber 20%. Isn’t a much better deal? Also DiDi seems have invested in Lyft
