Grab — the leading app for deliveries, mobility and financial services in Southeast Asia — was started 9 years ago when co-founders Anthony Tan and Hooi Ling met in business school. They discovered a common passion for their home, Southeast Asia, and were inspired to build a technology-oriented company that could deliver profit as well as make a positive social impact. Today, Grab has become a household name in Southeast Asia and is providing a variety of on-demand services — including mobility, food, package and grocery delivery services, mobile payments and financial services — across 428 cities in 8 countries. Grab also offers users access to over 9 million drivers, merchants and agents. The company announced in April 2021 that it is set to go public through a SPAC merger with Altimeter Growth Corp., in a deal that values the company at nearly $40 billion — the largest blank-check merger ever.
