You love to travel. You love to be the ‘hostess with the mostess.’ You love meeting like-minded business professionals. You’ll love CoNomads.
CoNomads is a site that helps you meet up with other “digital nomads” and entrepreneurs. Whether you are trotting the globe or interested in having a powerful collaboration in your own backyard, CoNomads is your one stop shop to finding the best people to work with.
It’s simple: set up your account using your Facebook, email or Google+. Then create a profile with your photo, business information and contact information (which is only shared with the people you select). Fill out a few easy questions about what you do for a living and what you are like to live with, and CoNomads invites you into a world of traveling and collaborating possibility!
How It Works
Add your future travel plans into the site and CoNomads will show you matching itineraries of other like-minded entrepreneurs that you could potentially link up with. You can either list places you want to visit to find people who are looking to go to the same destination and are willing to share accommodations, or you can choose to be a host. As a host, the site will list your location as a possible destination for other users looking to visit your area. If no matches are currently in the system, CoNomads will email you as soon as any matching plans are added.
What Makes It So Cool
If you’re looking for some inspiration for a future trip, check out the “Explore” tab at the top of the website. Here, you can see all of the current plans in the site organized by destination. Everywhere from Thailand to Turkey have upcoming plans, both with users looking to host and users looking to travel.
Their newest addition to the site is a Locator Map which pinpoints where all of the current and future plans are all over the world. You can use this map to see where the most popular destinations currently are, as well as find out who the closest members of CoNomads are in relation to you.
Think of CoNomads as the Airbnb of networking and collaborations. Get a little work in on your next vacation. Link up with a prominent food photographer to document your trip, learn writing tricks from that blogger you love–the possibilities are endless! In today’s digital age, there are so many of us who work for ourselves (which is awesome!) but there are times when you wish you can bounce your ideas off of another brilliant mind and collaborate with others. CoNomads is your liaison to finding the other entrepreneurial powerhouses that can help you bring your business to the next level.
