Uber, the ride-hailing service, has become one of the tech industry’s newsmakers of the moment. This week is no exception.
On Tuesday, the San Francisco-based company said it would soon bring its food delivery service, UberEats, to its hometown. On Wednesday, it emerged that Uber had raised roughly $100 million from an Indian private equity firm, Tata Opportunities Fund, as the start-up expands in India. That same day, the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles alleged that Uber’s process of checking the backgrounds of its drivers was so flawed that authorities had uncovered 25 Uber drivers in those towns with criminal records, including several convicted of sex offenses and murder.
