Gett completes $100 million round to boost corporate platform
The corporate ground travel company raised an additional sum of $76 million on top of the $24 million it raised last year and intends to use the funding to expand its global presence, especially for its enterprise service
With the investment, Gett intends to expand globally, with the intention of serving its business clients anywhere in the world through a single app. According to Oun, Gett aims to provide companies with ride and delivery services locally as well as during business trips.A recent report by Vostock indicated Gett suffered a drop of at least 75% in private transportation and around 50% decrease in corporate services, but a sharp increase in its delivery business meant its value only dropped by 5% as a result. “Being fully funded and reaching a key milestone in our profitability journey, is an important step for the Company. The proceeds will help us grow our unique corporate SaaS platform internationally, while we consider an IPO in the future, to further accelerate our expansion,” said Gett CEO Dave Waiser. ““The way people move around in cities is changing dramatically as a result of Covid-19 and businesses are seeking to optimise costs and to put in place efficient and safe ground travel solutions for their employees. Our mobility software is helping businesses thrive by empowering people to be their best on the go.”
“The completion of the fundraising during the pandemic is a clear expression of confidence by our shareholders and new investors in Gett’s vision to focus on the corporate market and its plan to expand globally, as well as in the company’s strong operational and financial performance.”Gett Chairmen Amos Genish said in a statement.
