Today’s Killer Startup: Nomad List

Elevator Pitch

Nomad List is the one stop spot for all the information digital nomads need about potential new cities.


Why It’s A Killer Startup

Over the past year, I’ve gotten really good at tracking down information and resources about new cities. That’s because my boyfriend and I have lived in five different cities in four countries since this time in 2014. We’re part of the growing population of “digital nomads” – people who work online and therefore aren’t tied to one place due to their job – and as I write this, I’m sitting in a working space in a colonial mansion in Antigua, Guatemala.


This morning I starting researching Bali, the next country on our frequent flier list. The Airbnb rabbit hole is one that can suck me in for hours if I let it, so I got out of there quickly – only to be sucked into Nomad List.


While not as pretty as Airbnb (but let’s be real: who is?), Nomad List provides exponentially more useful information. It lists cities in each region of the world, and then breaks down all of the info you need about it: average cost per month, internet speed, coworking spaces, and the startup scene, to name a few. While I’m a little skeptical of where they got their info – I’ve lived in both Argentina and Chile, for example, and there’s no way the cost of living in Buenos Aires is $400 more per month than the cost of living in Santiago – it’s definitely a great resource for general information about cities we’re headed to next.


Nomad List is also hopping on the paid Slack chat bandwagon, with the #nomads group. The group is pricier than most – $30 one time fee – but gives you access to digital nomads around the world. For folks that are feeling lonely in a new city, I think it could be a great resource for meeting new people and gathering information about their newest homes.
