Uber Hosts Student Veterans of America for Two-Day Leadership Summit at San Francisco Headquarters
Dozens of veteran and active military leaders from Student Veterans of America (SVA) gathered at Uber HQ in San Francisco this past weekend for a two-day summit on leadership, technology and bridging the military-civilian divide.
SVA chapter leads participated in a variety of leadership and chapter development activities throughout the course of the summit, including teaming up with Uber employees to brainstorm, develop and present business plans on how to successfully operate and fund local SVA chapters.
The summit featured participation from senior executives at Uber such as Senior Vice President of Business Emil Michael, as well as tech industry leaders from Twitter, Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, Techstars and Skybox. Admiral Eric T. Olson, USN Retired and UberMILITARY Advisory Board Member, delivered the keynote address Saturday morning.
Since we launched UberMILITARY in September of 2014, we’ve seen thousands of members of the military community take advantage of flexible earning opportunities with Uber, earning over $1 million per week. For more information or to sign up to drive, please see: https://get.uber.com/cl/ubermilitary/
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
