Unicorn founder backs Multipolitan's pre-seed round

Multipolitan’s pioneering platform transforms global mobility, empowering individuals to explore, live, work and thrive anywhere in the world.

SINGAPORE, June 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Multipolitan, the world’s first product-driven global migration platform, has secured pre-seed funding from Lee Smith, the visionary entrepreneur behind Paidy, which was acquired for $2.7 billion by PayPal.

This strategic investment supports Multipolitan’s mission to empower a new generation of Multipolitans – ambitious individuals seeking freedom, opportunity and belonging through seamless global mobility solution.

Headquartered in Singapore, Multipolitan aims to revolutionize immigration by transforming it into a streamlined product-driven experience. Initially focusing on investment-based migration strategies for high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs), the company plans to scale its services to include visa and consular services, skilled migration, nomad visas, and business incorporation.

"We are building a brand that resonates with both the established and the aspiring. Multipolitans defy traditional notions of residency, understanding that true security lies in the ability to adapt and thrive amidst change," said Nirbhay Handa, CEO and Co-Founder of Multipolitan.

High-net-worth individuals (HNWIs) are increasingly transnational and mobile, seeking superior business and lifestyle opportunities. According to the Knight Frank Wealth Report 2024, the global population of HNWIs is projected to increase by 28.1% by 2028. This growth trajectory suggests that the number of HNWIs will exceed 100 million within the next five years, marking a 56.9% increase. This data indicates that the market for international mobility solutions is currently only beginning to realize its potential.

Highlighting the limitations and opportunities in the global immigration landscape, Sandeep Jain, COO and Co-Founder of Multipolitan, stated, "The traditional immigration landscape is ripe for disruption. Today, individuals and businesses seek to diversify investments and expand global mobility options but are consistently frustrated by archaic practices. Multipolitan’s product-driven approach places the customer at the center, delivering a seamless and frictionless user experience."

Co-Founder Lee Smith expressed his enthusiasm for supporting Multipolitan’s vision, saying, "Multipolitan is building a better future by connecting people and their skills to opportunities ripe for growth. Their innovative approach to global mobility is something I truly believe in and am excited to be a part of."

Multipolitan recognizes the evolving nature of sovereignty. As corporations rival nations in GDP and virtual realms disrupt traditional state dynamics, the company envisions a future where individuals maintain dual allegiances. Leveraging its expertise in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and the blockchain capabilities of its parent firm EmergentX (, Multipolitan aids governments in building trust and engagement through advanced digital systems and e-governance policies. The company also assists governments in establishing Special Economic Zones (SEZs) grounded in principles of neutrality, sustainability, and legality.
