about the summit

community impact

growRemotes summit – the event for digital nomads, for people & companies who believe in the ‘work from anywhere’ (WFA) way of living.

It is for all those companies who want to elevate their remote work to the next level. For all the leaders and HR managers who are looking for new opportunities how to give more appreciation to their teams, top-talents, and key performers. For those, who are willing to showcase their best practices in boosting teams’ performance, their innovative products, and services that are truly loved and appreciated by remote workers, or simply to get inspired by the stories we would tell.

growRemotes summit is also meant to bring value to solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, start-up owners, freelancers, small business owners, or just remote workers who have been working for months (or years) from home, and strive to explore, to grow, to escape the rat race and the 9-5, who want to feel free and take charge for their own lives, travel the world & living their passions.

This is the first event dedicated to remote worker & digital nomads and the future of Bulgaria as a WFA destination.

Moreover, there are no stop factors:
