Disney and Uber are two of the most well known brands in business today. Both are in a period of rapid transition; Disney is launching its eponymous streaming service (Disney+) and Uber is fighting battles on two fronts - against regulators wanting to classify its drivers as employees, and investors demanding a path to profitability.
