This week I had Cody Ruberto, CEO & Founder of U-Ride on the show. He’s got an amazing story about being a professional soccer player and then starting U-Ride, which is a ridesharing company that operates in underserved communities.
He talks about what it took to be a professional soccer player, and then getting injured in his first month of playing. He visited 19 different doctors around the world, many of whom said he would never play again, and got 6 surgeries and finally made it back. From there he started U-Ride in Thunder Bay to help people get home safely at the end of the night.
It is an amazing story to hear how someone started a company with $3,000 that would compete against Uber & Lyft (who have raised $30B, collectively). U-Ride now does 1 million rides per year across 15 different cities in Canada.
