How does this work?
About

After 4.5 years at Uber, I independently consulted before founding Mylance. During my time at Uber, I became an expert in launching and scaling 2 and 3-sided marketplaces, in both B2C and B2B. I'm an expert in food delivery and freight logistics, given my experience launching UberEATS in Miami and Milan, and Uber Freight in the US. Before Uber Eats, I managed 9 markets for Uber Rides in North Carolina. What does Mylance do? Mylance helps you up-level and run your freelance consulting business from back office admin, to lead generation alongside a community of talented peers.
