GoKart Labs Ventures has helped unlock an idea that long-time employee Chad Gillard has been brewing on for about twenty years. Gillard paired up with GoKart Labs Partner and VP of Strategy, Matt Johnson to introduce the world to Work Around.
Work Around organizes remote working adventures for those that desire travel, but can’t get away from work. They provide accommodations and co-working spaces to stay connected to home, and guides that know the area to ensure you spend your after-hours living like a local. If you need it, they’ll also help convince your boss why they should pay the fee.
They work with:
- Companies who want to reward their employees as a type of working sabbatical.
- Small business owners who otherwise wouldn’t be able to get away.
- Employees that want to network and learn new skills by working immersed in a different culture.
The inaugural Work Around begins October 7th, 2018 in Derry, Northern Ireland. The Work Around fee is US $3500; that includes accommodations, workspace, group activities and related transportation, as well as some breakfast & noon meals.
