Seeing the potential in her hometown, Joana - Lagos Digital Nomads CEO & Founder - has already turned Lagos into a Digital Nomads and Remote Workers Hotspot.
“Lagos Digital Nomads” was a project that started off as a Facebook group in August 2020. Initially, we hosted weekly Meetups with the intention of building a Community of Digital Nomads in Lagos. Bit by bit, we started meeting Digital Nomads and Remote Workers and learned about their needs during their stay in Lagos.
Lately, we realized that this Digital Nomads and Remote Workers market is an excellent opportunity to sustain a vibrant tourism industry in both Lagos and the Algarve. This was how the “Lagos Digital Nomads” portal began. In this portal, local businessmen and entrepreneurs have the opportunity to target this new market of Digital Nomads and Remote Workers, by advertising their services and products. Accommodation, coworking spaces, restaurants, leisure, entertainment, Portuguese lessons, health services, moving to Portugal services, real estate, and lawyers are some of the services in demand by many Digital Nomads and Remote Workers who visit Lagos.
Our next big step for 2022/2023 is to bring companies and startups on Workation programs to Lagos.
