Session title: THE NEXT EVOLUTION OF SUPERAPP GRAB
Date: 18 October 2021
Host Jason (00:00): The Singapore-based company was uniquely positioned to benefit during the pandemic with its range of offerings, enabling drivers to switch from ride-hailing to food delivery. That spurred double-digit growth, which caught the attention of investors in the U.S. Hooi Ling joins us here, in our New York studio, along with the Wall Street Journals Bowdeya Tweh to discuss how Grabs NASDAQ debut will affect the business.
Bowdeya (00:58): Alright, thanks Jason. Hi, Ling.
Hooi Ling (01:01): Morning, Bow.
Bowdeya (01:02): Grab made big headlines earlier this year, announcing that it was going to complete a U.S. listing and that it would add a $40 billion valuation with Altimeter Capital. What do you think this opportunity, in the moment, means specifically for the company, but more broadly for Southeast Asian tech companies?
Hooi Ling (01:21): Great question. Ill start with what it means for the region, because I think thats what most excites us about this public listing, cause, you know, 9, 10 years ago, when my co-founder Anthony and I started speaking to investors, nobody really knew about what Southeast Asia was, which countries it was, where it was even on the map. But now, its really interesting to see how that has all changed cause everybody understands the region is really exciting, super high growth as an area because a lot of folks are calling it China five years ago, right? In terms of market size, the population of Southeast Asia as a region is twice of what it is in the States. And more importantly, as part of the digital transformation journey, were still early on in that because for example, in China, when it comes to the penetration rates of online, on-demand mobility services, theyre four times larger than what we currently are in Southeast Asia. So overall, I think it is a very exciting milestone for us, but we see it as a milestone that is actually relatively early in a much longer journey for us because one, the region is really growing. Two, I think a lot of folks recognise that the Grab superapp strategy that we have is uniquely positioned to ride that wave.
Bowdeya (02:38): So lets unpack the word superapp. Obviously, you have delivery, you have ride-hailing, you have, obviously, food delivery, other services. Theres, youre looking at financial services as well, you know. Why was that model so compelling for the company and how does that, how do you envision kind of like, where you go next?
Hooi Ling (02:57): Well, big questions. Ill step back a bit and talk a bit more about what superapp means to us and how its different from what other people usually think about because when folks hear the word superapp, they usually think about the WeChat model in China, right? WeChat started with the social chat messaging platform then went into payments and other services, but for Grab in Southeast Asia, our superapp journey was uniquely Southeast Asian. First, I think the reason why it was so compelling for the region is the majority of smartphone users, when we first started business, were using lower-end smartphones, with lower processing power, lower storage capacity, you know, smaller real estate on the screen. So it was naturally inclined to have users who preferred to have less apps in their phone, instead of more apps for more services, which then was the organic growth path for Grab to have one app, a superapp, for multiple services. But even for us, in terms of our evolution path, it started differently from, lets say WeChat, right? We started first with the intent never to be a superapp, the intent was to solve the most critical everyday service in Southeast Asia, which was to have the safest, most efficient mobility service, and from then, because we developed the widest driver network, we moved into food deliveries, parcel, grocery deliveries, hypercritical in the Covid lockdown era. And as you mentioned earlier as well, for financial services, we developed our own payments network because in a region where cash is king and cash is inefficient, that was really important for us. All of these evolutions have been natural adjacencies of what the region needs most, and we have dedicated strategies for each of our superapps as well, because the other thing for us is, were not just one consumer superapp; were a superapp for our drivers and our merchants as well.
Bowdeya (04:56): I see. On that point, that can be really tricky from a regulatory point of view because you operate, obviously, in multiple countries and you know, superapp regulation is something that has gotten a lot of attention last year and this year, especially the actions that China has taken against WeChat and other companies. So how does Grab approach regulators with understanding, like, Hey, heres, we do a lot of different things but we do things to protect and ring fence data. Like, how do you have those conversations with regulators and whats your fear of whether those companies might take a China-like approach?
Hooi Ling (05:29): I think its really important to understand that Southeast Asia is a region that is unique even on the regulatory front. Grab, unlike China, or even unlike the States, we dont have decades of prior, big tech companies. Grab is really at the forefront of the first wave of technology companies that are operating in the region, and why thats important is because since day one, we have always taken a partnership approach with all of our local governments and regulators. And that ethos has really played out well, because for us, we know and believe that its really important to work hand-in-hand with our local governments and they now see us as partners in nation-building. This is best reflected in, you know, the variety of different initiatives that we consistently collaborate with them on. Ill just give a few examples. For example, when Covid first started and vaccinations started to become available, we knew it was hypercritical for the recovery of the region to start really getting as many people vaccinated as possible. So in countries like Indonesia, we launched more than 50 large-scale vaccination centres throughout the country to help accelerate these efforts. And we did this in collaboration with the local government and clearly, these things are being valued because most recently, President Jokowi visited one of these centres just to see what was going on and say thank you because its so important.
Bowdeya (06:59): So, on that point, a lot of times, a lot of the concern from regulators is data and just, kind of like, what information that you know about your users and the visibility that Grab has across different markets. So how, how do you have those conversations internally just about either, what the tech stack needs to look like to make sure that were not running afoul of any laws or anything like that?
Hooi Ling (07:23): Again, I think, important context, the regulatory environment in Southeast Asia around these regulations, privacy is also very different, right. Its relatively nascent and a lot of data privacy regulations are still in the crafting stage. Across the region, I would say Singapore as a country is the most mature in this dimension, but I think the question that you ask is what is our approach, whats our mental model, right? For us, we believe very strongly in applying best practices across the region, irrespective of whether existing regulations exist, because ultimately what we want to do is create a platform that folks trust and feel secure with and what you need to do, to do that, is always stay ahead of the curve. Net net, if I combine this with the partnership approach I just talked about earlier, and how we work together with our government and regulator partners, our long-term aspiration and objective is always just to make sure we are there with them to co-create, co-solve, make mistakes together, learn together because we believe working with them is hypercritical, whether its data or any other regulatory framework, for the future of the region.
Bowdeya (08:40): And on that point, how does Grab evaluate which markets it ultimately is going to enter, obviously, you know, eight at this point, probably. Theres a day where you envision that there is going to be more. Does it start with the regulatory conversation and then trying to look at regulators or do you look at local markets, like, what is, how do you determine where youre going to go? And even where to go next?
Hooi Ling (09:04): You know, its really funny because to us that decision is where not to go. Its a matter of focus, and its a matter of where we believe we can add the most value. So for context, were in eight countries right now in Southeast Asia, 400 plus cities, and we intend to go deeper into Southeast Asia and not elsewhere because I often saywhy go anywhere else when everybody else wants to be where you are? I mentioned a bit about the fact that everybody now understands that Southeast Asia is a very exciting, high growth area, right? But more importantly for us, I think, we know were just scratching the surface. As the first wave of home-grown technology companies, theres so much more to do. And to illustrate a bit of it, you talked about some of the services our superapp currently provides. Just the total addressable market for a portion of them, which is just the mobility, food delivery and just payment wallet businesses, the TAM there is already 180 billion dollars. This doesnt include future potential growth areas like digibank, other financial services like savings, insurance and whatnot or even groceries deliveries, right. So that potential is huge. So thinking about whats next, I think the two big important pillars first, one is on the financial services front, six out of 10 individuals in Southeast Asia are unbanked or underbanked. And the reason for this is most of the existing banking services are not designed for the developing markets in Southeast Asia. Who can afford to pay 1,000, 10,000 plus dollars for insurance premiums? What weve done with our technology and distribution networks is to create very innovative products like where our drivers can actually pay for their insurance coverage on a pay-per-ride basis with as little as 10 cents per ride, which then gives them cumulative coverage of more than 200,000 dollars for critical illness, right? So these very innovative solutions that are designed for their spending patterns and their income patterns are a lot more of what were planning on going deeper into. One bucket. The second bucket is on deliveries. I talked about food deliveries, but, you know the area that we are most passionate about is a category internally we call ACE anything you can eat, right, which is food deliveries and groceries as well. As you can see, with Covid, digital acceleration, folks are in a new normal of what they believe convenience should look like in this era and I think this is an area where our largest driver network asset and also our payments capabilities, and our financial services capabilities really help us grow.
Bowdeya (12:02): So, as you look at the, you talked about the TAM for those three markets being really, really large, and obviously there was a big merger, Gojek and Tokopedia, that obviously was a, consolidate, you know, they decided to merge services and obviously, thats a big competitor. How has that changed the competitive landscape for you know, even the markets that Grab is looking at or how has, you know, how, do you feel like you need to respond to it?
Hooi Ling (12:30): I think stepping back, if you look at the entire history of Grab, weve always been in very hypercompetitive markets and to be honest, we actually welcome it because it always makes us better. We are no stranger to lots of competition, we have competition with different kinds of players, historically, much better-funded, bigger players as well, and its something that has always made us better. Ultimately for us, what matters most is what do our users need the most so I think I mentioned earlier, that we, we actually, Im not sure if Ive covered it, so Ill talk about it a bit right now. When we think about which services to provide in our superapp, we dont go out saying we want to do everything, we are quite specific about only addressing the use cases that we think are most critical for the everyday needs of our target segment. Thats why weve ended up in mobility, food deliveries, groceries, payments, financial services. There are many other things that we could do but we decided not to do them because these are the most important ones right now. So, its similar to how competition and everything else affects us, those are shorter-term, you know, changes. What we think about is the long-term fundamentals and the long-term, you know, economics use case value that were bringing to our consumers and we are quite excited about using very tailored technology to enable that as well.
Bowdeya (14:00): So, going back to something you said, theres an audience question that just came in and you used the term nation-building, and obviously, that, from a tech company perspective, you know, in the U.S., some people might shudder at that. But I think one of the questions that one of the audience members has is that itd be interesting to understand the governance model that you guys have that might combine business growth but also the idea that, you know, these companies can do social and environmental good. How does that speak, when you say the term nation-building, what do you think about that, especially from an ESG lens?
Hooi Ling (14:34): I think, for us, its about the conversations that were having with our government partners and our regulators, the different ministries on what is most important for them and how we can develop our platform to support that as well. And were supporting each other because ultimately, we believe a win-win-win solution is what everybody needs and in order to figure out what that looks like, it requires conversation. Now, I mentioned the kinds of initiatives that were looking at to help that. Maybe some of these might illustrate why I call it nation-building, right. So for example, in the Philippines and Vietnam, we had different ministries of agriculture looking for ways to help farmers get more access to consumers and give them higher margins, right. The first people they look to and have conversations with is us because they know that we can provide them access to marketplaces where we develop these. When the Singaporean government thinks about, okay, we want to increase digital literacy for the entire country, but we know that the elderly is a segment thats getting potentially left behind, we work together with them to actually create digital skilling clinics, and we spend time and resources on going to different elderly communities to build that as well. All of these kinds of things dont happen out of nowhere, it happens because we are in constant conversations with them and they know because theyve seen from our historical actions over the multiple years that we put our money where our mouth is, right. And we really care about these overall long-term initiatives.
Bowdeya (16:17): And thinking about these long-term initiatives, obviously, Grab, unlike many other large technology companies, isnt profitable at the moment, but how do you evaluate what Grabs path to profitability is and maybe what steps might each business line, at least the big ones, need to take to get to that point?
Hooi Ling (16:38): So, how we think about profitability, let me just step back and share a couple of underlying themes, right. First things first, for us, growth and profitability, we think, go hand-in-hand. And I think we have illustrated this consistently over our historical performance, where were consistently growing but also consistently taking significant steps towards our path to profitability, and I think the best illustration of that is our most mature business, which is our mobility business, which is already segment EBITDA positive. So with that mindset, expanding it to our larger portfolio, we take that same broader mental model, which is, when you have a new, exciting, high-growth opportunity, invest into that area, but always invest knowing that there is a path to profitability and take those steps until, you know, into a more mature business such that overall, the entire superapp ecosystem is healthy.
Bowdeya (17:37): And so, in doing that, its difficult, right? Because the idea to invest, take the stuff from the high-growth, you know, the stuff that you know is going to make money and then plug, use those investments and invest in the stuff that is nascent but might be something down the road. Those are difficult decisions, especially the markets that youre operating in dont look the same. So how do you approach that, even just as, as a tech leader, like when, like what levers to pull, and how do you think about that?
Hooi Ling (18:05): I wish there was a silver bullet answer to this, I think, and many folks try to simplify it. I think, to be honest, its not easy. It really depends on the situation so if I can share an example, when Covid happened, what would you do, right? Ill just use that as a live illustrative example. Pre-Covid, our mobility business was by far, our largest business. Post-Covid, post-lockdowns, that went to like barely nothing, right? But because of our unique superapp strategy and portfolio that we already have that weve been investing into, we were able to very quickly pivot to our deliveries business. And those decisions happen live as we are reacting to whats happening on the ground, as well as thinking about whats the longer-term objective. So the longer-term objective is always a very healthy superapp ecosystem. Actually, let me deep dive into that a bit because it might not be common to folks on how we think about it. First things first, when folks think about superapps, they think about just the consumer side of things, which weve talked about. But for us, there are actually three superapps, three strategies that then work together in a virtuous flywheel, right. So on the consumer side, on the driver side, we have something very unique which is our shared fleet strategy, which is unique to Southeast Asia and unique to Grab. What do I mean by that? When youre thinking about profitability and helping drivers become profitable, one of the things that is challenging for them is how to earn more money during the day when there are different peaks and troughs of demand. So, for example, if youre just transporting people, your peak happens before work, at the end of work, early in the morning, you know, late afternoon. If youre transporting food deliveries, your peak happens at lunch time, dinner time and the end of the day. Parcels, groceries, everything in between. What weve done is weve created algorithms and the capabilities for our drivers to actually participate in all of those peaks during the day so that they can actually serve multiple needs and earn more money, right. And thats some of the examples of how were able to achieve this. And on the merchant side, theres a different strategy, right. For them, its about how we help them earn more money by lets say, more targeted advertising capabilities. How do we help them run their businesses more effectively with more training, with more tools, analytics and things like that? Those are the underlying foundational pillars that enable us to consistently move forward on higher growth and higher profitability as well.
Bowdeya (20:48): And, on the horizon, its going to, it seems like its obviously going to be difficult to pinpoint maybe a specific time when thats going to happen but the goal, it sounds like, the way you guys are investing, is that you guys are going to get there at some point in the future across your business, across all the superapp business lines.
Hooi Ling (21:08): Exactly.
Bowdeya (21:09): So, thinking about the technology that you have, Grab obviously, you know, based in Southeast Asia, but you also have technology centres in Seattle, you have a technology centre in Bangalore, you know, obviously, like, how do you look at the tech talent that you need to ultimately build the software to run the, you know, to build the tools that you are actually going to need to run the business, like how do you evaluate kind of like, where youre mining talent from?
Hooi Ling (21:38): Yeah, I think this is a really interesting question because again, we had to do things in a very uniquely Grab and uniquely Southeast Asian way when it comes to technology talent. Elaborating a bit more, I mentioned earlier that Grab is in the first wave of, you know, tech companies in the region so therefore when we first started, there wasnt really available tech talent that we could hire from and thus we iterated, experimented with multiple different ways of how we could staff at the scale and quality we needed. And we landed on a global R&D strategy very early on as a young startup, which is very unique and to be honest, something that a lot of folks advised us against because they werent able to do it before. But we made it work because we had to, there was no other choice. When you dont have local talent, you go global. And then the question is hey, what kind of talent do you go for, to, for different locations? This is where were quite excited, you know. Im actually going to be travelling to Seattle to visit our tech team there later because in Seattle, we get a lot of access to deep AI experts, ML, data scientists, folks who are experts in that area. In China, we get access to a lot of folks who are deep into the delivery space and in Bangalore, you know, financial services, and another team in Romania, where we actually have deep mapping capabilities as well, cause thats actually a very hyper-localised proprietary technology that I am actually quite passionate about. Do you mind if I elaborate a bit more?
Bowdeya (23:10): Sure, yeah.
Hooi Ling (23:12): So, again, the uniqueness of Southeast Asia, for any of you who is familiar with Jakarta, Manila or Hanoi, any of our big cities, right. Youre probably familiar with the visualisation of sometimes chaotic roads that are not always the same, they are ever changing and also a lot of little back alleyways that not many people know about on how to use, they are important shortcuts or sometimes these back alleyways, you can only use it if you are a two-wheeled motorbike rider, but you cant use it if you are a four-wheel driver, right. So the reason why this is important as an on-demand platform that specialises in smart, efficient matching of supply and demand, right, requiring all of this routing, its really important to have this data in the most accuracy and liveness possible for the local vehicle types. And we realised very early on, whether its mapping or anti-fraud capabilities, or safety capabilities and many other capabilities, if we wanted to develop services at a user experiential cost profile that made sense for us, we would have to do it on our own. So right now, if you look at Singapore, if you come to Singapore and you turn on the Grab app, everything related to mapping capabilities is actually powered by our own internal stack because we found it to be way more efficient, way more accurate, and way more cost-efficient as well.
Bowdeya (24:43): What is one thing that you think people, especially a lot of people from the U.S. audience, need to understand about what Grab is, especially if we may never see it in the U.S., like you said?
Hooi Ling (24:52): Wow. Um.
Bowdeya (24:54): If you had to, like, keep it within a few words.
Hooi Ling (24:57): Think of Grab as a combination of Uber, DoorDash, Venmo, PayPal and you know, Bank of America, together.
Bowdeya (25:07): Okay, well leave it at that. Thank you so much for joining us, Ling. Back to you, Jason.
Hooi Ling (25:09): Thank you, Bow.
