Ride-sharing service Uber reported this week that customers have used its app to take more than 2 billion rides.
This is a massive acceleration in growth, coming just six months after the company announced it had surpassed 1 billion rides.
To put this in perspective, consider that it took the company more than five years to deliver its first billion rides... and just one-tenth of that time to deliver its next billion.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick wrote in a Facebook post that 147 trips started in the same second to tie for the two-billionth ride...
Today, Uber is in 450 cities around the world.
The company's growth is extraordinary. But it shouldn't come as a surprise.
An incredible wave of technological innovation has been taking place "behind the scenes" over the past several years. And it has already transformed industries across the United States. For example...
You can now hold a detailed map of the U.S. – down to a high-definition street-level view – in the palm of your hand. You can host a live video phone call with someone halfway around the world. And the first self-driving cars – Tesla's problems aside – are already on our streets.
And just like Uber's growth, the speed of change will only accelerate in the next several years...
Longtime Stansberry Research subscribers may remember Amber Lee Mason as the co-editor of our DailyWealth Trader advisory for several years.
Today, Amber is the managing director of our corporate affiliate Bonner & Partners, and she recently alerted us to an opportunity from her newest editor, Jeff Brown – a 25-year veteran of the high-tech startup world. She writes...
Amber says this move has nothing to do with earnings calls, drug approvals, or anything like that. Instead, it's all about the technologies being quietly developed today that will make "normal" life look incredibly different in the next few years...
If you're not familiar, Jeff has spent 25 years as a high-tech executive, doing everything from building startups to running billion-dollar businesses.
At last year's Stansberry Alliance conference, he explained why we are on the cusp of a technological revolution that will lead to millions of lost jobs... and cause wealth inequality far beyond what we're seeing today.
But while this scenario could be a catastrophe for millions of Americans who don't understand this technological shift, this "new world" could create true financial security for those who do.
Jeff has been watching this trend grow for nearly 30 years... And now, he believes we're about to reach the tipping point.
When it hits, nearly everything about our everyday lives – including how we shop, travel, work, relax, and even retire – could radically change. And he believes these changes could happen sooner than almost anyone would believe possible.
Understanding this wave of innovation now – before it hits – could mean the difference between a life of "unprecedented luxury" and just struggling to keep up. Even better, Jeff says this trend could offer "the greatest speculative opportunity of the last half-century."
Investors who buy the right companies today could make life-changing gains... And thanks to a change in U.S. investment law, many more individual investors can take advantage of this technological shift than ever before.
Jeff's research has uncovered 21 private companies poised to go public in the next 12 to 18 months – including one Jeff says could become the next Apple (AAPL). He says every single one has the potential to hand early investors gains of 1,000% or more.
Amber has prepared a special presentation with all the details on this urgent opportunity. Click here to see it now.
Editor's note: Thanks to his hard work and analysis, Jeff Brown has created a list of the 21 private companies that he expects to go public within the next year and a half. The "Venture Elite Hotlist" is something wealthy investors would pay $10,000 to $20,000 per year to read.
But right now, Bonner & Partners is offering a "charter discount" that will give you immediate access to Jeff's research for a fraction of that cost. Learn more here.
