The considerable Softbank investment will also help Grab build a second headquarters in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta, said SoftBank Chief Executive Masayoshi Son to reporters. Back in March, SoftBank has invested nearly $1.5 billion through its Vision Fund to extend a fundraising drive that is ongoing since last year.

The investment was also made by top carmakers like Toyota, Hyundai Motor, China’s Ping An Capital, tech giant Microsoft, and U.S.-based asset management company OppenheimerFunds.

The company claims to secure $300 million from investment management company Invesco and plans to raise around $6.5 billion by the end of this year. It had started as a ride-hailing service but later introduced food and grocery delivery, mobile payment, and many more in Southeast Asia.
