Fireside chat with Gabriel Nimrod, CEO&Co-Founder of BeeRemote

Who is Gabriel Nimrod?

I have always seen myself as a world citizen with an entrepreneurial soul. After living in 8 countries, traveling to over 50 countries, running a few hospitality businesses in Central America and Europe and managing startups in Singapore and UK, I decided to combine my life experience and follow my big dream & passion – to promote and simplify flexible working.

What’s the story behind BeeRemote?

BeeRemote started with a simple but challenging idea to help digital nomads, freelancers and long-term travelers work anywhere in the world. We always believed remote and flexible working is the future and wanted to make it accessible. A month after our launch last year, Covid started. Everything was confusing and we needed to adapt really fast to the changes
around us. What seems, in the beginning, as a huge crisis for the business, actually made our vision a reality. Companies were forced to allow employees to work remotely and they saw that both sides are pleased and the solution can be productive.

After analyzing the changes, we decided to do a pivot, focus on B2B and change our platform to help businesses adapt easily to the new reality and support their employees by connecting them to hundreds of flexible workspaces that help them balance WFH, reduce cost and avoid long term leases and commitment.

Now, a year later, we work with both start-ups and larger enterprises around the world, providing customised management platform of flexible working, which includes access to over 1500 state-of-the-art offices across the world for employees to use.

What was the most difficult part of your experience in the early beginnings?

Establish and managing an early-stage startup when a global pandemic is starting was definitely a huge crazy challenge!

What are you most proud of regarding your business?

Our amazing team created a truly global solution that supports companies from every corner of the world. That is quite amazing and also makes everyday colorful! I can start my day with a zoom call to a supplier in Tokyo, continue to a meeting with a client in Berlin, zoom meeting with our team in Austin Texas, and so on. For someone who really likes traveling and exploring different cultures, it’s a dream that comes true.

What is your vision for the future of BeeRemote?

When I lived in fabulous Singapore I learned that they built their train system (MRT) with the 15 minutes rule. You will always have a train station at least 15 minutes walk from anywhere you are in the city. Our crazy vision is to implement the same rule on BeeRemote. We want you to open our app anywhere in the world and have an option to book a working desk up to 15 minutes walk from you.

What’s your advice for the businesses that are trying to adapt to this economic climate?

My advice will be to take a deep breath for a long roller coaster journey and work really hard.

But also to be innovative. Try different ideas all the time and when you find that a specific angle is working, keep pushing in this direction. That’s our advantage as startups. We can and need to be dynamic. All the time.

Please name a few technologies which have the greatest impact on your business.

As we promote remote working…Our team also works fully remotely. Apps like Zoom, Slack, Monday, Whatsapp, Trello, etc’ are the core of our operations.

What books do you have on your nightstand?

I am fascinated by books about psychology, economics, management, and biographies. And always recommend to anyone to read the classic ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ by Stephen Covey. When I need to boost myself, I always go back and read it.

Because of the current economic climate our publication has started a series of discussions with professional individuals meant to engage our readers with relevant companies and their representatives in order to discuss their involvement, what challenges they have had in the past and what they are looking forward to in the future. This sequence aims to present a series of experiences, recent developments, changes and downsides in terms of their business areas, as well as their goals, values, career history, the high-impact success outcomes and achievements.
