Grab Ventures, the venture arm of Southeast Asia’s ride-hailing giant Grab, is planning to launch the third batch of its accelerator programme, Grab Ventures Velocity (GVV), with an aim to attract early-stage, post-seed startups engaged in sectors aligned to its core business.

“We are already thinking for batch 3, but we have yet to determine the time [to launch the third batch]. Possibly, it would be later this year. We are yet to set the theme, but we want to empower entrepreneurs that are related to our core business,” Grab Ventures head Chris Yeo said.
