Digital nomads in Croatia

Building a global company through digital nomadism?

Our digital nomad lifestyle has been an incredible source of experiences! We have not only seen amazing places, but more importantly, met great people from around the world! Some of them have even joined our team. With some others, we have created synergies and in all cases, we have had a good time!

Why COVID-19 is an EdTech opportunity for Latin America

Source: World Economic Forum

  • “In Latin America and the Caribbean, more than 154 million children or about 95% of the enrolled students are temporarily out of school owing to COVID-19;
  • There is a significant digital divide in the region which threatens the accessibility of remote learning and other education technologies to all;
  • Governments and start-ups are stepping up to meet the challenge, deliver learning programmes and overcome the region’s connectivity issues.”

“Latin America is one of the most unequal regions in the world. Three-quarters of Latin Americans are categorized as low or lower-middle-income with 30% living below the poverty line. Though many countries in the region have made significant strides towards lowering income inequality in the past few years, the richest decile of Latin Americans still owns 71% of the region’s wealth. Combine the region’s income inequality with the COVID-19 crisis, and low-income families are now facing unprecedented challenges.”

E-Learning Market Size is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 10.85% by 2025

  • “The global e-Learning market size was 171 Billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.85% during 2019 to 2025.”
  • “North America’s e-Learning market share accounts for nearly 40 percent of the global e-Learning market.”
  • “APAC is expected to witness the highest growth rate that will give market vendors many opportunities.”
  • One trend in the market is the increase in adoption of microlearning, which refers to learning using bite-sized content. Since educational institutions and the corporate sector focus on personalized learning, there will be a growing preference for microlearning in the coming years.”

Insurance training is boring?

Most of us have been through corporate training, in companies’ meeting rooms, training centers or convention halls. There, even if the training sessions were not always interesting, the advantage was that you could meet new people, do some networking and at least have breakfast or even lunch. Hot coffee and warm croissants… it’s not that bad after all. What about the Return on Investment for that training? Well… 

Since the COVID spread around the world however, training has substantially evolved and gone online at a previously unseen pace. Companies that were only talking about digitization now had to do it! Under time pressure. Many companies were not ready and had to put together some online courses within a very short timeframe. As for the level of quality and engagement, well… 

In both cases, learners find the training sub-optimal, not to say totally boring. If 5% of your learners finish your online courses, it’s normal. No, it’s not! If you have the right management buy-in and the right online training, you should aim much higher. 

Does it have to be that way? Really?
Young talents expect – and deserve – more than this! We all love learning.

Alright, alright, but “some topics are more interesting than others”, “Insurance is dull, it’s boring.” Really?
Protecting the people you love and the things you like is boring? Insurance is connected to anything we do. There are countless beautiful or tragic stories related to insurance.

Besides, ANYTHING can be made interesting. It’s all about your state of mind…

Mon expérience chez INGAGE

“Digital Nomad” depuis bientôt 2 ans, je voyage dans divers endroits du monde tout en travaillant depuis mon laptop sur des projets digitaux. En gros, le terme « digital nomad» signifie: être capable de travailler depuis n’importe où tant qu’une connexion internet est disponible ! Travailler pendant les voyages, depuis des domiciles temporaires à l’étranger, des hôtels, des cafés, ou encore des Coworking Spaces, ce mode de vie nomade offre la possibilité de voyager à plein temps, ou de passer au moins une bonne partie de l’année dans les zones du monde qu’on préfère!

Voyager, rencontrer des personnes de ce même milieu et d’autres, partager nos expériences, sont des moments précieux qui resteront marqués pour toujours. Ces personnes de chaque coin du monde qui deviennent des collègues, des coéquipiers, des amis, nous apprennent tous quelques choses et nous font grandir dans un contexte multiculturel et élargissent notre vision du monde. Le fait de pouvoir échanger des idées avec des personnes créatives et entrepreneuses au style de vie différent,  nous aide à devenir nous-même beaucoup plus créatif et à mener notre travail avec encore plus d’efficacité. 

Et c’est ce qui s’est passé avec Ingage! J’ai commencé à travailler pour Phil et Pat en septembre 2019 par tout hasard… à ce moment je me trouvais au Costa Rica pour travailler sur un projet marketing pour promotionner un Coworking Space à Puerto Viejo. Phil et Pat se trouvaient dans ce même Coworking Space et c’est comme ça que tout a débuté. Depuis ce jour, je les aide sur certains projets et c’est toujours un plaisir de travailler avec des personnes comme eux, qui partage ce même mode de vie. Nous échangeons souvent sur les meilleurs endroits où aller et les meilleurs Coworking Space d’où travailler.

Voyager tout en travaillant offre des possibilités immenses tant au niveau professionnel que personnel. Cela nous permet d’acquérir de nouvelles connaissances et capacités que l’on aurait difficilement acquises autrement. La liberté en vaut largement la peine et on a la chance de vivre à une époque où travailler n’est pas incompatible avec voyager… C’est la preuve, avec les startups comme INGAGE, tout est possible!

BYOD: “Bring Your Own Drink!”

Our team at INGAGE organizes “Bring Your Own Drink” sessions every 3-4 weeks with colleagues and friends around the world.

Each time, we have a Special Guest leader in a field who shares insights about a key global challenge (Blockchain, Human Rights and Technology, Virtual Reality, etc.) followed by quick updates from some of our team members around the world.

While we do have some “serious” but exciting topics, these sessions are first of all meant to spend a good time together in this period of global confinement due to COVID-19.

Many of you have been very supportive over the past few years and we would be happy to welcome you to our future sessions. We have a large group every time and due to many requests, please contact me to make sure you’re included in our event. Cheers ?
