Our mission

Drive Southeast Asia forward by creating economic empowerment for everyone.

Some years back, when our co-founders Anthony and Hooi Ling met in business school, they discovered a common passion for their home, Southeast Asia.

While the region is wonderfully diverse and full of potential, its people face very real everyday challenges. Cities are getting more congested. Public infrastructure is limited. And income inequality is widening, leaving behind those who are underprivileged and underserved.

These challenges affect millions of people and businesses, and they inspired our co-founders to build a technology-oriented company in Southeast Asia that could deliver both profit as well as positive social impact.

Nine years on, Grab has grown into a household name in Southeast Asia. As the region’s leading superapp with hyperlocal services, we strive to live up to our mission every day.

Who we serve

Every day, we serve millions of consumers, merchants, and drivers on Grab. Consumers look for quality services to ease their everyday lives, while merchants and drivers get access to greater earning opportunities because of our large consumer base. In fact, we are proud that many of our driver-partners got their very first earning opportunities with Grab.


Grab consumers get choice, fast delivery times, safety assurance, and value at every price point.


Grab merchant-partners count on our wide reach, efficiency, and innovation to grow their business, no matter the size.


Grab driver- and delivery-partners are empowered with the flexibility to earn, and the technology that makes their earn-time more efficient.

Our commitment

Grab was founded on the belief that a technology company in Southeast Asia could both run profitably and create sustainable social impact. We hold ourselves responsible to the environment and socio-economic development of this region, not just for today, but also for the future.

The principles that guide us

At Grab, every Grabber is guided by The Grab Way, which spells out our mission, how we believe we can achieve it, and our operating principles, which we call the 4Hs. These principles guide and help us make decisions as we work to create economic empowerment for the people of Southeast Asia.


We work together as OneGrab to serve the communities in Southeast Asia.


We work to understand ground truths and drive improvements, big and small.


We keep our word and steward our resources wisely to build and sustain trust.


We are a constant work-in-progress, and we never stop learning to get better.

A safer everyday, for everyone

Since day one, safety has been our priority. Today, as our platform grows to serve millions of consumers and partners, safety is more important than ever.

GrabFood delivery-partner, Thailand

Komsan Chiyadis

GrabFood delivery-partner, Thailand

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
