In the chat, we discuss:

  • The history of ridesharing in the US

  • The problem with Uber & Lyft

  • What a worker-owned cooperative is, exactly

  • How The Drivers Cooperative formed

  • How owner voting works in the cooperative

  • How profits are distributed among owners

  • Marketplace dynamics: How they manage supply & demand

  • The challenges of going up against Uber & Lyft

  • The mechanics of investing in their crowdfunding campaign
