Founded by Samuel Brooksworth in 2020, Remoteli was established with the aim of connecting tech job seekers with employers in need of hiring. With its headquarters in the United Kingdom, Remoteli expanded its reach by opening its first international office in Accra, Ghana. The company boasts of utilizing AI-powered software to efficiently match companies with the right tech talent. To date, Remoteli has successfully hired over 100 individuals and provided support to 100 clients, demonstrating its effective role in the tech recruitment sector.

A survey recently carried out shows that “nearly 90% of young players fell anxious or depressed after leaving their club, with 72% feeling their club had not provided enough support.”

Frimpong Introduced Pathways in January 2024

In January 2024, Frimpong introduced Pathways, a program designed to support football players aged 15 to 22, regardless of gender, who do not progress to professional football levels. That same month, Pathways partnered with Remoteli to provide football players with technical skills, effectively blending technology with the sport.

In an interview, Frimpong expressed that his investment in Remoteli is a testament to his support for the startup’s objectives. These include offering support and alternative career paths for football players who are unable to establish themselves within the professional football community.

“I care a lot about developing people and places that don’t have a lot of opportunities because that is the background I come from. When Samuel pitched the idea to me, I bought in immediately,” he stated.

Frimpong’s Investment in Remoteli

Frimpong’s investment in Remoteli is part of a growing trend among football players recognizing the importance of technology and its potential benefits. This interest is further evidenced by a recent fundraising effort in which Janngo Capital, alongside three prominent French footballers—Aurelien Tchouameni of Real Madrid, Jules Kounde of Barcelona, and Mike Maignan of AC Milan—successfully raised $3 million for StarNews Mobile, an Ivory Coast-based mobile video network.

Remoteli Plans To Continue Bootstrapping and Pursue Minimal Funding Efforts

Remoteli, aiming to maintain its focus on sustainable development, plans to continue bootstrapping and pursue minimal funding efforts. This strategy is intended to foster and capitalize on organic growth, emphasizing the startup’s commitment to its core mission and long-term viability.
