Firstbase, an Aberdeen, Scotland, UK and NYC-based provider of remote infrastructure for global teams, raised $13m in Series A funding.

The round was led by Andreessen Horowitz, with participation from B Capital Group, and Alpaca VC.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth plans through hiring, product development and increased customer deployment.
