Gett, founded in 2010, offers a ride-hailing service in several international markets, including Israel—where it is the main player—Russia, the U.K., and New York. German carmaker Volkswagen is the company's biggest investor, following a $300 million investment in 2016. Volkswagen also led an $80 million round for the company in June. Gett raised $674 million to date, according to Pitchbook.
In August, a quarterly filing by Stockholm-listed venture capital firm Vostok New Ventures Ltd., which holds a 5.6% stake in Gett, stated that the company makes 100 million rides a year and “generates around $1 billion in mobility services.”
A Gett spokesperson has been approached for further information but has yet to respond.
