In this new edition of Extrapreneurship, CFTE has partnered with Uber.
Extrapreneurs will work on a real case set by Uber that leverages on the global presence of the platform, and is centered around Uber Pay.
Unlike hypothetical case studies, this is a real case with inputs and feedback from the Uber team that is directly involved in Uber Pay.
Thanks to the collaboration between CFTE and Uber, Extrapreneurs can acquire Fintech and payment knowledge and apply it in a very short amount of time.
