With news that We Co has withdrawn its IPO filing, we take a look at what the move could mean for corporate venturing going forward.
SoftBank Vision Fund and Alphabet are among the largest shareholders in Uber, which has filed for an offering that could value it at $100bn, a decade after it was founded.
SoftBank Vision Fund invested $1.46bn to take Grab's series H round, already backed by Toyota, Hyundai, Kia, Booking Holdings, Central Group, Yamaha, Ping An, Microsoft, Tokyo Century and KBank, to $4.5bn.
Booking Holdings has provided more funding for Didi as part of a strategic partnership, as the latter looks to spin off its vehicle services arm in an IPO sized at up to $1.5bn.
Entertainment producers like 21st Century Fox and Warner Bros have reportedly supplied $200m of an $800m round that will support high-budget, short-form video, as content continues to draw in big bucks.
