One of the most important benefits is probably health insurance. And it’s also one of the hardest to organize for a remote company when you have team members working from many different countries.
This is what SafetyWing, a Y Combinator graduate who recently raised a $3.5M seed, has been working on. With Remote Health for the first time remote companies can cover all of their employees or contractors under one health insurance product, no matter where they live or travel to.
Remote Health is built to be flexible and easily manageable with a simple dashboard where remote companies can add/remove insurance coverage of their remote team members.
Their vision is enormous with many more products to come until they have built a complete safety net tailored to the needs of online freelancers, entrepreneurs, and remote companies. See them on the big stage at Web Summit.
