In 2010, a company called UberCab raised a seed round on AngelList.
We sent this email to investors on AngelList in June 2010. Five of them ended up investing in the seed round.
Since then, Uber has hired on AngelList Talent and launched its rider app on Product Hunt. With Friday’s IPO, it will join the ranks of super companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon.
Congratulations to the Uber team! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey.
