Ridding the city of London of a million cars is just one of the many goals Travis Kalanick has set for himself. As co-founder of taxi app Uber, the 38-year old has been connecting millions of passengers with drivers, decreasing traffic congestion, and boosting the value of his five- year-old startup to a whopping $18 billion.
