Uber Technologies Inc is considering selling minority stakes in its costly self-driving car unit as the ride-hailing firm tries to address rising cost pressures ahead of its initial public offering, the Financial times reported on Wednesday.

Uber will retain operational control and majority ownership of the unit, but external partners could share the cost of developing and eventually commercialising self-driving technology, the newspaper said.

In other words, we (Uber) retain control - Just give us the money!
