Grab follows rival Go-Jek with R&D centre in India, adds in Vietnam too

Southeast Asian ride-hailing platform Grab on Wednesday announced the opening of two new R&D centres in India and Vietnam, respectively, in a bid to expand its global R&D capabilities and doubling the number of its R&D centres to six from three in the last quarter.

The company’s move comes almost a year after its rival Go-Jek, Indonesia’s bike taxi service and one of the most watched startups in Southeast Asia, announced plans of setting up a development centre in India by acquiring two local companies – Bengaluru-based software engineering company C42 Engineering and Delhi-based CodeIgnition in February last year.
