Disrupting Auto - Shift Founder and Co-CEO George Arison

Episode Summary

George began his career as a project manager for Google before cofounding the first on-demand mobile transportation booking technology, Taxi Magic (now known as Curb), two years before Uber was even created. His new company, Shift, is an online marketplace disrupting the car industry and going public via a SPAC. We talk about the journey of this $100M Founder from Immigrant to Entrepreneur, what a SPAC is and how is scaling from an idea to a multi-million-dollar business. We also have a fascinating chat on how large companies can avoid disruption, but often do not.
