Terminal 3 makes remote working a global travel experience
by Startacus Admin
With the pitch of “Living the Dream, and travelling and working remotely across six destinations in six months”, Startacus was naturally intrigued by the concept of Terminal 3.
Having recently visited our online startup showcasing space to showcase Terminal 3, we heard from the team (two co-founders with a passion for startups & travel) about their plans for the 6-month long program (which closes for applications soon!)
Terminal 3 takes a group of digital nomads and startups to travel the world whilst working remotely. The six-month program starts in Lisbon this June and ends in Indonesia in November. We organise all the logistics including flights, accommodation, co-work space, travel insurance, language and yoga classes, and a number of business / social events each month.
How did you meet?
Ironically we met whilst working remotely in Brazil last year. We were selected to work with business professionals on an EU Commission program by EBN called EU Brazil Connect. The program hosted European Entrepreneurs all over Brazil. Often we would get together for weekends and day trips away. We all agreed that remote work was lonely, and once back in Europe we missed the community we had built when travelling and remote working together. This got me thinking and eventually Terminal 3 was born at our program reunion in Brussels later in the year.
Who is Terminal 3 for?
Terminal 3 is aimed at digital nomads, startups, entrepreneurs. Basically, if you have an office job which can be done in front of a computer anywhere in the world, Terminal 3 is for you. We strongly believe life is too short to wait for your holidays. Terminal 3 offers the perfect combination of a work life balance with a community of like-minded working professionals.
What is the typical profile of a participant at Terminal 3?
Confirmed participants include three startups from the US and South America, digital nomads and entrepreneurs from Europe, US, Canada and Asia. The one thing all participants have in common is a strong desire to balance their work life schedule whilst seeing the world. At Terminal 3 we have a strong focus on personal and professional development. We put in place regular mastermind groups, hack days and social impact events.
Biggest challenges for Terminal 3
The digital nomad concept is growing momentum. However, we often meet many people who have no idea where to start. Terminal 3 breaks the ice for many who dream about travelling and working remotely but lack the will-power to go it alone. Hence, we invest time consulting a borderless way of life with a number of communities.
What are the problems for a digital nomad and how do you solve this?
Terminal 3 seeks to alleviate three main pain points; loneliness, the lack of a community and stress-free remote work and travel. Terminal 3 does all this for you. We developed Terminal 3 with the digital nomad in mind. Six months travel and remote work in a different country each month. Plus regular get-togethers, social and business events, did we mention twice weekly yoga and language classes. We manage all the logistics from day one!
There’s only days left to apply!
Deadline for the current program is Monday 29th Feb 16, so pop on over to the Terminal 3 website to find out more about the program - handy link to application form included here if you fancy taking that leap.
