  • Uber rival Grab to raise massive round March 27, 2017

    Grab, the Singapore-based ride-hailing company that’s a main competitor to Uber in Southeast Asia, is in the process of raising more than $1.5 billion in a round led by Japanese tech conglomerate SoftBank (TKO: 9984), according to a Bloomberg report. The company previously secured a $750 million investment in September, valuing it at about $3 billion and bringing Grab’s total raised to more than $1.4 billion.

    News of the funding comes about a month after Ola, a ride-hailing startup based in India, raised $330 million in another round that included funding from SoftBank.
