Eric Newcomer

Reporter, Global Technology

Eric Newcomer covers privately held, venture-backed technology companies for Bloomberg -- in a word, startups. In particular, he tracks Uber, Lyft and Airbnb. He's written about startups trying to get into gas delivery, DNA printing and international freight-forwarding. He's dug into Dropbox and Zenefits for Businessweek and made many appearances on Bloomberg West. Before joining Bloomberg, he was the first employee at The Information. He broke the news that Amazon planned to acquire Twitch -- a $1.1 billion acquisition. He wrote about the sharing economy's independent contractor dilemma before the topic was mainstream and raised questions about the benevolence of Facebook's Internet.org project before the backlash in India. He graduated from Harvard College in 2012 with a degree in Philosophy.
