Elevator Pitch:

NomadWiki is a super simple tool that compiles essential information for digital nomads.

 

Why It’s A Killer Startup:

The digital nomad movement is growing rapidly, as more and more people realize that, if you have certain skills, an office is no longer a requirement. I’ve been a digital nomad for three and a half years now, since before there really was a term for it, when I moved to Argentina and started writing for this website as way to avoid teaching English like all my other foreigner friends.

 

Since then, I’ve lived in Chile, Colombia, San Francisco, Vermont, and Guatemala, as well as traveled to Nicaragua, Panama, and Peru. Oh, and my boyfriend and I are about to head over to Southeast Asia for a few months. All we need is our computers, a decent wifi connection, one checked bag and one carry-on, and we’re good to live our lives.

 

NomadWiki is a new site for people like us, bringing together info from around the web to help current and future digital nomads figure out the particular pitfalls of this lifestyle. They have links to help you figure out everything from what bag to buy (very important) to comparison sites looking at the viability of being a digital nomad in cities around the world (awesome) to info on coworking (essential). It’s a quick primer on the digital nomad lifestyle, boiling it down to the essentials.

 

Being a digital nomad is awesome. You get to live all over the world, experience amazing cultures, and often live a much higher standard of living that you could back home. But it’s also hard: you move around a lot, it’s hard to make friends, adjusting to new climates takes a toll on your body and adjusting to new work spaces/time zones takes a toll on your productivity. Check out NomadWiki to make the whole thing just a little bit easier.
