Our Story

What started as a tiny company in 2012 has turned into Grab, Southeast Asia’s largest mobile technology company that connects millions of consumers to millions of drivers, merchants, and businesses. Grab is taking on the largest problems that affect the region, including access inequality, outdated infrastructure, and income disparity.

Grab Ventures was launched by our CEO & co-founder Anthony Tan in June 2018 with the vision to build and nurture the next generation of tech leaders in Southeast Asia. Towards this vision, we do venture building and startup programs and strategic investments.

Venture Building

We launch, scale and grow startups within Grab in strategic new business areas. This enables our company's vision to be Southeast Asia's leading everyday everything app as we continue to add new services to our ecosystem.


Every year, we engage 1-2 cohorts of startups from across the region to pilot their services within the Grab ecosystem. In addition, we build founder capabilities through workshops and 1:1 mentoring from C-suite experts. We leverage an exclusive base of Grab internal as well as our partner network experts. Successful graduates could receive partnership opportunities and/or strategic investment from Grab.


Grab Ventures makes strategic investments into scale and growth stage startups that have strong synergies with Grab. With access to our unique assets & capabilities and expertise & networks we aim to dramatically lower costs to enable growth for our portfolio companies.
