In a speech that sounds like a "Wolf of Wall Street" clip, Kalanick announced plans to continue expanding and hire more drivers, and he made no apologies for the company's continuing success.
"And today, just five years later, those original hundred friends and 10 drivers have become tens of millions of people in 300 cities across six continents. ... And in 2015 alone — this is just in the rest of the year — we expect another million people to drive with Uber," he said.
