I think others will gradually chip away at them in some specific verticals, but it will be a slow process." - Charles Hudson

Re: Making City Living Better as an Investment Theme -
"I think Lyft and Uber are special because transportation is an everyday need. I would not say the same is true of all of the categories I listed above - when you have a frequency habit and density, it's a potentially killer combo. But I do think cities are great labs for testing out services that require some level of route / consumer density to make the math on acquisition and fulfillment work." - Charles Hudson
