Uber Technologies, Inc. will establish a new U.S. General and Administrative Hub that will house various corporate functions in Dallas, TX. The multinational ride hailing services, food delivery, and transportation company will invest more than $75 million and create 3,000 new jobs with the project.
“Dallas became the first city in Texas where the Uber app was available in 2012, and since then Texas has been a hub of innovation for our platform,” said CEO Dara Khosrowshahi. “Uber is excited to bring this major investment to Texas and to increase our commitment to the City of Dallas. We are grateful for our partnership with Governor Abbott, Mayor Johnson and Judge Jenkins and their leadership in making this a reality.”
A Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant of $24,000,000 has been extended to Uber Technologies, Inc.
“I am proud to welcome Uber’s investment in the great state of Texas, along with the 3,000 jobs the company will bring to its new Dallas office,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “This investment will bolster Texas’ continued economic success and reputation as the best state for business. Our unrivaled workforce and business-friendly environment makes Texas the perfect home for innovative companies like Uber.”
“This decision speaks to the depth of innovation and technology talent that is moving to the Dallas region,” said Dallas Regional Chamber President and CEO Dale Petroskey. “We’ve seen the fourth-highest high-tech job growth of any U.S. metro area over the past four years. Uber recognizes that we are committed to recruiting elite tech talent from around the globe, and also preparing our home-grown workforce through expanded focus on rigorous STEM instruction in our high schools and colleges.”
“The numbers that make up this investment package add up to a win for Uber Technologies and for the City of Dallas,” said Eric Johnson, Mayor of the City of Dallas. “But beyond the math, Dallas and Uber are just a great match. Dallas is a vibrant, diverse, welcoming, and innovative city, and I’m certain Uber and its employees will flourish here.”
