In just one year (2014 – 2015), popular ride sharing app Lyft grew five-fold. From it’s humble beginnings as a small peer-to-peer ride app called Zimride in 2012, Lyft’s popularity has literally exploded since their relaunch in 2013.
Now you can find their fuzzy pink mustache cars in more than 65 US cities where users can get picked up by one of their 100,000+ drivers. This astonishing growth has earned them a $2.5 billion valuation and more than $1 billion in funding.
How has Lyft pulled off this massive growth spurt? And what can you learn from their success?
That’s exactly the question we put to Lyft CTO Chris Lambert who will be speaking (on exactly this topic) at Extract in October.
