How Vidit Agrawal became the first Uber employee in Asia

Dave Birch interviews Vidit Agrawal, who holds the distinction of being Uber’s first employee in Asia, in this new Consult Hyperion podcast.

Vidit Agrawal holds the distinction of being Uber’s first employee in Asia. Currently the head of strategic vehicle partnerships APAC, he’s in charge of spearheading the vehicle partnerships of Uber in the region, and is responsible for the growth of the business.

I ask him about how he got into Uber, his background, and the difference between countries and cultures when it comes to markets.
