Remio Raises $4.5M in Seed Funding

Remio, a San Francisco, CA-based virtual reality platform for remote team building and collaboration for global enterprise customers, raised $4.5m in Seed funding.

The round led by Khosla Ventures with participation from Version One Ventures, The Venture Reality Fund, and Moai Capital.

The company intends to use the funds to extend the core platform for enterprise customers to create their own magical spaces, games, experiences, and other fun activities in a secure environment.

Founded in 2020 by Jos van der Westhuizen and Derrick van Schalkwyk, Remio provides an all-in-one solution for remote team building in VR. It offers multiple team bonding activities such as Spaceship Escape Rooms, BarVR, and Paintball, in addition to all of the standard VR collaboration tools available in a company’s HQ, such as whiteboards, breakout rooms, and magical presentation rooms.

The platform has already innovated systems that allow highly interactive sessions for over 150 people in a single VR scene and have hosted multiple enterprise events with up to 300 people simultaneously socializing, playing games, and exploring their company’s metaverse.

With the rise of hybrid work environments and integration of VR technology in workspaces, the company has seen organic growth and adoption with several marquee customers including Google, Netflix, Hubspot, Fidelity, Twilio, Trello, and Nextdoor.
