Grab is on track to swiftly raise another $1 billion for its expansion drive across Southeast Asia, boosting the war chest it has built since April to a total of $3 billion, Grab president Ming Maa told FinanceAsia in an interview.
The start-up that forced San Francisco-headquartered Uber to pull back from Southeast Asia started its H-round of fundraising in April. Within four months, it closed on $2 billion dollars of capital from some of the world’s most well-heeled investors, according to a person familiar with the process.
“We’re not finished. We’ll likely get to a $3 billion fundraising round this year,” Maa said.
