The Start-UP: Anthony Tan from GrabTaxi
Anthony Tan's biggest regret - no starting earlier. And he's got all the energy to start a couple more startups after Grabtaxi.
Watch him share his experience on his growth priorities and start-up pains and gains.
Using the GrabTaxi app, commuters can book taxis in a fast, convenient and safe manner and aims to revolutionise the taxi industry. Runner-up in the 2011 Harvard Business School Business Plan Contest, its core product is a taxi-dispatch service with GPS-enhancements, allowing passengers to hail the nearest taxi with extreme ease. Since year 2012, thousands of taxi drivers have been using the GrabTaxi smartphone-based technologies to receive bookings in Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand, and now Singapore. As a humble start-up, GrabTaxi believes that business and social value can be achieved in parallel. It hopes to make a difference in Singapore's public transportation, by making it easier, safer and more efficient to book taxis.
