Ghanaian Talent Startup Remoteli Raises £250,000 from Footballer Jeremie Frimpong

Remoteli, a Ghana-based tech talent startup that connects African tech talents with remote workplace services, has raised £250,000 pre-seed funding ($314,824) to scale operations and expand across Africa.

The funding round was led by Jeremie Frimpong, a Ghanaian-Dutch professional footballer who plays as a right wing-back for Bundesliga club Bayern Leverkusen. Frimpong’s investment follows a trend of football stars backing tech startups. In 2023, French football players, Aurelien Tchouameni, Jules Kounde, and Mike Maignan participated in a $3 million funding round for StarNews Mobile, an African mobile video network.
