The Information’s Troubled Tech Companies List

We identified companies that could struggle in the coming months if they don’t raise more capital or quickly develop a winning strategy. Most are in much-hyped sectors like augmented reality, scooter rentals and cryptocurrency.

Once high-flying tech companies like WeWork and Uber have been shedding employees. Others are struggling to fundraise. Following a reckoning in the public markets in 2019, 2020 isn't likely to be kind to tech companies that have been burning through cash and haven't found a way to turn a profit. ...

We're excited to announce the addition of Meng Xing, the chief operating officer of Didi Chuxing's new autonomous driving company to the powerful line-up for The Information’s The Tech & Transport Revolution in Asia, taking place November 6th at the Eaton Club in Hong Kong.

Didi has completely changed the way China's cities move and beat Uber in the process. It's one of the best-funded startups ever, with nearly $8 billion cash at the end of last year, and powerful alliances with the world's biggest carmakers. Didi spun out its autonomous driving unit just this summer -- we're getting a rare opportunity to learn first hand what they're planning.
