30% of respondents to this survey said lack of community was the biggest challenge to remote working.
Grow Remote is built by a team of volunteers who hand a hunch that Ireland could benefit from a tighter community and ecosystem around smart working, we are specifically are interested in how this benefits the regions of Ireland. Over the past few years locations that traditionally may have had a lack of resources needed to work have opened up. They now house some 200k+ remote workers in Ireland.
This September, a conference is kickstarting it all with three streams hearing from and connecting with companies, local communities, and remote workers. Real life meetups will be a continuing theme of Grow Remote and wherever you travel, there will be some meetup to get to know other remote workers and nomads.
