Work From Georgia – Like Airbnb but for workspaces, and it’s free

A bunch of companies coming together to share workspaces within their offices, free of charge, to encourage digital nomadism in Georgia.

Georgians are hosts at heart. That is why such a crazy project idea was even born locally.

It is almost unbelievable that so many companies across the country came together to open their office doors for free to guests around the globe. And this is done in order to put Georgia on the global map of digital nomadism and turn the country into a digital nomad hub.

Apart from hospitality, Georgia has everything that digital nomads are looking for. This is one of the reasons why the crazy idea that was born has actually taken shape.

Founded in 2019, workfromgeorgia is the first ever virtual co-working platform that offers actual workspaces at companies in Georgia to digital nomads for free.

workfromgeorgia is all about creating more authentic and comfortable travel experience, connecting people from around the world, and encouraging new friendships that transcend national borders.

The platform allows digital nomads to not only travel as tourists, but also immerse themselves in the every-day life of Georgians, to not only visit, but stay and explore. Guests can expect comfortable workspaces during daytime and fun parties after hours. workfromgeorgia gives companies a chance to do what Georgians pride themselves on the most: practice true Georgian hospitality.
