RemotePass will use the funds to drive the company’s market expansion, supercharge its award-winning app, scale operations, and unlock a wave of product innovation — all designed to empower businesses and unlock new opportunities for global talent

5 March 2024, Abu Dhabi: RemotePass, an HR & Fintech platform that helps companies onboard, manage, pay, and retain remote workers, has secured $5.5 million in Series A funding. 

The oversubscribed round was led by 212 VC with participation from investors in the US, Europe, and the Middle East, including Endeavor Catalyst, Khwarizmi Ventures, Oraseya Capital, Flyer One Ventures, Access Bridge Ventures, A15, and Swiss Founders Fund. With this funding, RemotePass's total capital raised surpasses $10 million, adding to previous investments from BECO Capital, Wamda Capital, Plug & Play, and Flat6Labs.

Witnessing RemotePass's remarkable product growth and stellar customer service since early 2023 solidified our belief in their visionary team & business model. Addressing today's workforce challenges like talent mobility and remote work RemotePass stands out as a key enabler. It connects companies seeking a broader talent pool with emerging market talents who previously lacked access to global financial solutions and processes. This disruption positions them as game-changers in the UAE & KSA, hubs poised for global dominance. Ali Hikmet Karabey, Managing Director, 212 VC (Lead Investor)

Founded by Kamal Reggad and Karim Nadi, RemotePass serves a diverse range of clients, from startups to large listed enterprises like Spotify, Logitech, Paymentology, and others around the globe, enabling them to onboard, manage, and pay their talent base in countries where they do not have a local legal presence. Its clients can hire full-time employees and contractors in over 150 countries.

Our platform helps democratize access to global opportunities, leveling the playing field for skilled individuals and enabling them to compete in a global job marketplace. This funding fuels our mission to empower countless lives and help global teams succeed. Kamal Reggad, CEO and Co-Founder, RemotePass 

In the evolving global landscape of remote work solutions, RemotePass has emerged as a frontrunner by capitalizing on its deep understanding of emerging markets (especially the Middle East and Africa) and offering a comprehensive suite of benefits through its innovative super app. 

This app offers easy access to a range of financial services and benefits tailored to the needs of remote workers in the global marketplace, including multiple payout options, a USD debit card, and easy access to perks like premium health insurance. Apart from an end-to-end contractor management platform, RemotePass provides businesses with EoR services and relocation support. 

We are thrilled with the progress and traction that RemotePass has shown in its few years of operation. The oversubscribed funding round is a testament to the company’s robust financials, strong team, and high growth potential. What impressed us most at Wamda, and what confirmed our decision to back Kamal and his team since inception, is his entrepreneurial capability, which he demonstrated during the difficult days of the pandemic when he pivoted the company and subsequently built a great startup Fadi Ghandour, Founder, Wamda Capital
