I’m very pleased to share news of MOVE Guides’ recent investment from Notion Capital and NEA, two of the top venture capital funds in London and Silicon Valley, and from existing and new angel investors. Notion Capital and NEA bring unique experience building transformational global enterprise businesses, like MessageLabs and Workday, and we are excited to welcome them as partners on MOVE Guides’ journey to transform the global employee relocation market.
According to Deloitte, 75% of organizations expect to increase their population of mobile staff in the next 3-5 years, and many of these are young professionals with different preferences and behaviours than traditional expatriates. We have invested in building a solution to support these young professionals in their global careers, and this is reflected in the people we’ve hired, the product we’ve built and, now, the investors we’ve partnered with.
I am exceptionally proud of what the MOVE Guides’ team has accomplished in a short time. In just over a year, we have partnered with clients ranging from listed multinational firms to high-growth start-ups, and supported thousands of employee moves with 99% employee satisfaction. From our London start, we have expanded to support moves to more than 85 cities on 6 continents – to locations as diverse as Sao Paulo, Brazil, Shenzhen, China Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Salt Lake City, Utah. Most importantly, we have built an exceptional team – most of whom have lived abroad themselves - and a culture of collective ownership and customer focus.
We are grateful to our clients, customers, suppliers, partners and investors for their loyal support, invaluable feedback and for joining us on the journey to transform global employee relocation. There is much more to come from MOVE Guides and we are excited to accelerate solutions for you with support from our new partners. To the future!
Thank you, Merci, Danke, Gracias, Obrigado, Xiexie, Arigato,
