Remitr is proud to be chosen among the most promising startups in UAE by Forbes Middle East. The awards were given away at a glittering ceremony at the Waldorf in Dubai during October 2016. It’s a big motivation for us to achieve even more, and a small reminder of the expectations the world has from us.

The shortlisting process involved inviting applications from hundreds of startups who have launched their product recently in UAE and GCC markets. After going through an extensive evaluation of Remitr’s product, our business model and success in the UAE market, the process involved working with Forbes team to provide all the information required.

The recognition by Forbes is no doubt exciting and at the same time inspires us to do even more for the region. Remitr’s technology and remittance platform enables diaspora to send money home quickly and at the lowest cost compared to any other available remittance channel.
