According to an article written by Enrique Dans, what makes Uber valued for what it is valued for is its ability to scale. "The secret lies in understanding that Uber is not a transport company, but a technology company. Transport companies can act thinking locally... Technology companies, on the other hand, are intrinsically global, because their product developments need global markets in order to be put to value, in order to impact the totality of their economies of development, and for this they need to be constantly innovating. Uber's valuation is not what it is because its investors have gone crazy, are idiots or are a bunch of speculators: it is what it is because some have understood the importance of change of scale when it comes to competing. The value that Uber achieves is not a function of what it will be able to do on its own, but after gobbling up the parcels of activity that were previously carried out by many others in infinitely less competitive ways".
