Take a tour around the company's sprawling two-floor HQ

Grab started as MyTeksi in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2012. Today it has a presence in seven other countries around Southeast Asia. It has also since evolved from merely being a transport -hailing app into other services such as delivery and logistics. 

 

Founder and CEO Anthony Tan eventually moved the company to Singapore in 2014. Entrepreneur Philippines recently paid a vist to its headquarters, located at the Marina West Tower Building in the Lion City. Here are a few photos:
