Remote empowers startups to hire the best global talent

Remote has launched a new pricing plan, Remote for Startups, to empower growing businesses to hire the best talent from across the world. To qualify for the program, businesses must have raised a pre-seed, seed, or Series A funding round from a venture capital firm, accelerator, incubator, or another startup empowerment organization. The program is aligned with Remote’s mission to help businesses realize the value of global employment.

Why create Remote for Startups?

For early-stage startups, cash is a precious commodity. This new pricing exclusively for startups allows Remote to help businesses employ global teams when they otherwise would not have the financial resources to do so. In offering this discount, we hope to help more small businesses succeed by opening the door to an international pool of top talent.

What services does Remote for Startups include?

In short: everything. Companies in the Remote for Startups program receive full access to Remote’s entire suite of global employment services, including:

  • Compliance services for your international employees
  • Remote’s best-in-class employment software
  • Free contractor payments to 173 countries

Remote for Startups delivers the full Remote experience at a price designed for budding startups.

Who is eligible for Remote for Startups?

To qualify for the Remote for Startups program, your company must have raised a pre-seed, seed, or Series A funding round from a venture capital firm, accelerator, incubator, or another startup empowerment organization. Companies that have raised Series B rounds and beyond are not eligible at this time.

However, we know that not all startups take the same journey. If you don’t meet these requirements but would still like to take advantage of Remote’s global employment solutions, reach out to We would love to learn about your business and help you grow your team.

How much do startups save with Remote for Startups?

Qualified startups receive a 50% discount on their first employee with Remote for one full year. For every additional employee onboarded during the first year, you also get two months free — meaning you get 12 months for the price of 10! Plus, you can manage and pay as many global contractors as you like at no cost (beyond standard payment processing fees). Not ready to commit to a full year? Don’t worry: Remote for Startups applies both to our monthly and annual pricing models. No commitments, no hidden fees.

Is Remote for Startups limited by location?

Absolutely not. We are a global company helping other businesses scale their global teams, and we are happy to work with your business no matter where you call home. Operating in South Africa but want to hire in Mexico? Headquartered in India but onboarding someone in France? Based in the UK and looking to pay contractors around the world? Wherever you’re based, Remote can help.
