Rakesh Agrawal, founder of Snapstream and an early investor in Uber via Lowercase Capital, has done his research as far as his ride-hail investment is concerned. Agrawal said he signed up and drove for Lyft — arguably Uber's biggest competitor in the United States.

In response to a tweet from fellow Uber investor and Lowercase Capital proprietor Chris Sacca, Agrawal said he drove for Lyft to gather firsthand data.
Agrawal later told BuzzFeed News that he has been behind the wheel of five Lyft rides and "has the mustache to prove it."
