Remote work management company Workwize has raised €1.5 million ($1.69 million) in funding to support their vision of shaping the new way of working, facilitating remote and hybrid models of work.
The funding is led by Peak followed by Graduate Entrepreneur Fund and several private parties, including angel investors Marnix Broer (StuDocu) as well as Max Klijnstra and Milan Daniels.
The Amsterdam based startup was founded in 2020 by Michiel Meyer, Victor Dik, Sebastiaan Scholten and Dirk Kranendijk with the idea to set up remote offices and streamline the onboarding and offboarding processes for employees – envisioning the ‘new way of working’ that has become popular in the world since the pandemic.
Workwize CEO Michiel Meyer said: “We are convinced happy employees are an employer’s best asset. Employees are more efficient when working in a hybrid system.”
He also added that their preliminary research indicates that many employees prefer hybrid working models, but many companies are not yet able to facilitate that need. Hence the team is looking forward to building and shaping a new way of working for employees in the future.
The startup aspires to promote a healthy work environment and promote diversity with its platform. In doing so, remote work can reach its full potential with regards to the benefits it has for employee wellbeing.
With the funding, Workwize plans to internationalise their own team to be able to offer a multilingual and personalised approach for clients. They have kickstarted their hiring by making their first international hire in France and are currently seeking to attract new talent across the tech, commerce and operations teams to accelerate growth.
