Kalanick was born and raised in Los Angeles’ Northridge neighborhood, attending Granada Hills Charter High School before attending UCLA to study computer engineering and business economics – where he joined Theta Xi fraternity. Kalanick dropped out in 1998 to focus on his start-up company Scour Inc, developing multimedia search technology as well as Scour Exchange to allow users to share files online – but soon found himself facing legal threats from film boards, ultimately filing bankruptcy in 2001 before creating Red Swoosh – which eventually acquired by Akamai Technologies for acquisition later that same year.
After leaving Uber, Kalanick expanded his business interests by founding 10100 Venture Capital LLC, investing in real estate, e-commerce and emerging technologies.
