UnRemot is a virtual office platform that enables businesses to connect with remote professionals and collaborate effectively.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, remote working has become the new norm and many businesses expect to continue operating remotely even beyond the pandemic due to the benefits it provides. The global market size for the SaaS in collaboration, teamwork, and remote work market is already estimated to be at CAD 35 billion. UnRemot, a tech start-up that provides remote working and talent discovery solutions, has recently announced its move from India to Canada through TBDC’s SUV program to expand its market size and take advantage of this new opportunity.
UnRemot enables businesses to streamline their workforce by providing a single platform that allows them to discover, hire, and manage remote talent while also providing virtual offices to improve collaboration and teamwork. The start-up’s platform is made for two sets of customers – businesses seeking to hire remote talent and freelance workers. While there are existing platforms like Upwork and Microsoft Teams that allow talent discovery and remote collaboration, UnRemot offers both these features on one integrated platform for businesses. Furthermore, the start-up will also handle all the hassles around the safety and security of payments, underwrite the work quality, and delivery timelines of the freelancers on their platform. For freelancers, the platform provides an opportunity to engage with potential employers and find work.
UnRemot is founded by Shiju Radhakrishnan, a proven entrepreneur and IT professional with over 16 years of experience. Before launching UnRemot, he successfully built iTraveller.com, an online holiday booking platform that generated over three million USD in revenue. The website was acquired in 2018 by lastminute.com, a publicly funded UK-based travel company. He has won numerous accolades including Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015 by Junior Chamber International.
Under Shiju’s leadership, UnRemot has already achieved high traction and currently has 125 businesses that are using its platform. The start-up has reported that there are over 15,000 active monthly users and 6,200 active weekly users. UnRemot’s list of clients includes Grant Thornton, the sixth largest consultancy firm in the world. The startup has also recently raised CAD 100,000 at a CAD 1 million valuation. Ever since the start-up joined the SUV program, TBDC has been working closely with Shiju in ensuring the company is ready to scale up and expand its presence in the North American market.
