One of Uber’s earliest investors says the billions it spent on self-driving were a ‘waste of money’

Uber’s food-delivery business has been a massive boon for the company as the pandemic sent ride-hailing revenues down the tubes and takeout orders through the roof.

One early investor in the company, Benchmark’s Bill Gurley, says the company should have committed more investment to food delivery that it instead spent trying to build self-driving vehicles.
