Tan Hooi Ling

Co-founder, Grab
Location: Singapore

While her co-founder Anthony Tan serves as the face of Grab, Tan Hooi Ling is happy to work behind the scenes, making sure things are running as they should. Through the duo’s efforts, Grab has created jobs for millions of drivers across Southeast Asia, with their drivers seeing at least a 35 per cent increase in their daily incomes. “My desire is to create value for others,” she said of her source of willpower. “What's the point of living if you're not doing something worthwhile?” The self-professed gadget geek credits sci-fi film, Gattaca, which she watched as a teenager, for making her think about “the power of technology and how we should be harnessing it”.
