Uber has had an eventful 2014, so far, be it the heavy price cut it announced for UberX in many cities, its competitive moves in Shanghai and Bangalore, the violent protests against it in Paris, or the case of an Uber driver killing a girl in a California accident.

“This new fund will be used to expand into new markets, accelerate customer and driver acquisition, and fight off protectionist, anti-competitive efforts.”
