Jason Droege

Distinguished Speaker

As Vice President at Uber leading the global Uber Eats business, Jason Droege focused on leveraging Uber’s extensive logistics network to launch new business ventures for the past six years. The Uber Eats team scaled Uber’s food delivery business to more than 550 markets across 50 countries. Jason’s expertise as a successful founder and business leader across e-commerce, enterprise software and internet services helped him lead the team that created Uber’s first app outside of its core ride-hailing service and has built one of the largest food-delivery businesses globally.

Prior to Uber, Jason started the camera and cloud software division of Axon (AAXN), which now equips more than 300,000 officers with on-officer cameras and powers evidence management and workflow solutions for thousands of public safety agencies in the U.S. and around the world.

Jason left his role leading Uber Eats in early 2020 to enjoy some time with family and focus on early-stage investing. Jason attended UCLA where he founded his first business in the dorms with five other computer science students. He currently resides in the Bay Area with his wife and two children.
