Illustration for article titled The $50B Startup That Started Off With Blog Commenting

Launching a new website, app or idea is a tough process; Many of us have experienced this first hand - Time and time again - Even the almighty Uber.

While researching Uber’s actual launch strategy, from a late night idea to wildfire growth, I stumbled upon the hidden gem in the screenshot above. It’s a comment. By Uber’s co-founder Ryan Graves. On a small blog’s post that listed some “top travel gadgets”. And he’s reaching out in effort to get UberCab (now known as Uber) added to the post.


Personally, When I saw this - I was humbled. Shocked. Just goes to show that even of some of the most successful, Innovative people are really not much different than you and I. Everyone has an idea; But they’re the ones who took action.
