As more of the world’s cities become congested and polluted, new business models and technologies are emerging to solve the mobility challenge. In 2014, global venture-capital investments into mobility services amounted to more than $5 billion, up from less than $10 million in 2009. Besides Uber, China’s Didi Dache, which has more than 100 million users in 300 cities, raised more than $800 million and Ola, India’s biggest online cab service, has raised $677 million so far (McKinsey&Company, 2017).
