Remotebase, a startup co-founded by a GIK alumnus, raises a $1.4 million.


Remotebase, a startup co-founded by a GIK alumnus, raises a $1.4 million seed round to help Pakistani engineers get global exposure. Remotebase, a 10-month old startup that helps connect high-performing engineering teams with US companies, has raised a $1.4M seed round. The round was led by Indus Valley Capital and also saw participation from several renowned global investors such as billionaire investor Tim Draper, Hustle Fund Ventures and other well-known angel investors from Silicon Valley. Remotebase, co-founded by Syed Talha Masood who graduated from GIK Institute in 2013 (batch 19), has operations both in Pakistan as well as Silicon Valley and has raised the money to scale its operations by the end of 2021. The company’s mission is to turn Pakistan into a global tech hub by hiring, training and then placing engineers in Silicon Valley based startups. The idea is to give Pakistani engineers the exposure to the world’s most innovative companies by deeply integrating the engineers inside those companies. Engineers work anywhere between 12-18 months with each company, learn, gather experience, and then have the option of switching to a new Silicon Valley startup. For customers, Remotebase offers a magical experience. The customers simply go to the website, configure what kind of engineering team they are looking for, and then simply check out. Within 24 hours, the customers can start working with their remote engineering teams. “Working remotely my entire life with Silicon Valley companies has been an incredible ride. I had immense freedom, meaningful work and I got to learn from the best companies in the world. One went on to become a multi-billion dollar startup. I want other Pakistani engineers to have the same experiences and opportunities I had.” said Talha. With this fresh round of funding, Remotebase aims to hire more engineers, power Remotebase hackathons, and encourage women to get into tech through Remotebase for Women.
