‘We Know Them. We Trust Them.’ Uber and Airbnb Alumni Fuel Tech’s Next Wave.
March 13, 2019 | The New York Times | By Erin Griffith.

......“There are just not that many places to find people who have seen that kind of scale,” said Ryan Graves, Uber’s former senior vice president of global operations and a member of the company’s board.

“There’s room for appreciation in terms of the public valuation price,” Borko said, referring to Airbnb’s stock price if and when it goes public.

He added that Airbnb is leveraging a potentially “richly valuable stock and they are clearly putting it to work” in landing the HotelTonight deal.
