Our GVV Journey
Grab would not be where it is today without the invaluable support, expertise, and guidance of experienced players in the region. We would like to give back and share what we gained along our journey. This is why we launched GVV – to help build the next generation of tech leaders.
We evaluate each startup holistically, using a range of criteria including (but not limited to): problem being solved, market traction, economics, growth potential, tech capabilities, synergies with Grab, and fit with Grab’s values and culture.
You will work with the GVV team and an internal Grab team to pilot your tech within Grab’s ecosystem. Pilot goals are developed jointly between you and Grab. You will also have support from Grab during the program, including access to our vast customer base in the region, 1:1 mentorship, and access to Grab’s tech and non-tech resources (ex. Grab APIs, networks).
You will summarize and present pilot results to Grab at pitch day.
Generally, you are not required to be in Singapore or Indonesia for the entire program duration. However, startup teams may be recommended to co-locate with a Grab team on select days to make the pilots effective. Details will be discussed further during onboarding. In addition, there are specific days (kick-off, pitch day) where co-founders will have to be in event location (location to be confirmed). Grab will cover your travel and lodging expenses for these days.
Batch 3 applications are now open! You can send in your application form using the link above and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Applications will be closed at the end of March.
No upfront investments will be made at the start of the program.
No, as this depends on pilot outcomes and overall Grab assessment.
You are not expected to share your IP with Grab during your participation in the GVV program.
Yes, we do! We recently concluded our Batch 2 of GVV participants with successful outcomes. You can see our Batch 1 and 2 startups below in our portfolio page.
For additional inquiries, you may contact us through our contact form. We look forward to hearing from you!
