Uberpreneur: How An Uber Driver Makes More Than $252,000 A Year


An Uberprenure is an Individual who has leveraged the power of Uber to earn a fortune from the Company.

There are many different reasons why people choose to drive with Uber. Some do it for the freedom to drive when and where they like. They’re the boss, and they work for as long or for as little as they want, following a schedule that suits their needs. An average Uber driver earns between 80,000 – 120,000 Naira a week.

Driving for Uber is one of the most lucrative business ideas in Nigeria right now. It does not only give you the opportunity to work when you want (including nights or weekends) but also give you the ability to earn some extra cash while doing so. While some drivers are doing this full-time, some only do it at night after the day jobs and on weekends.

His name is Gavin Escolar, a charismatic Filipino man with a laugh that’s even louder than his orange-and-red striped dress shirt.

“I reach back to my roots,” he said. “When hiring new drivers, I find underemployed Filipinos and give them the jobs first. Most don’t know much about smartphones — and that’s okay. I teach them about Uber and Lyft. I teach them how to use the internet so it can help their lives in other ways, too.

I let them use the cars to run errands and pick up their children. It’s not about squeezing every dollar from them. It’s about empowering the community that you came from.”
