Digital Nomad Madeira is an initiative that came about in a partnership between Madeira Regional Government and the Startup Madeira and aims to attract digital nomads from all over the world.
The innovative initiative emerged in Ponta do Sol , as a pilot project.
“Ponta do Sol brings together the perfect conditions for nomads looking for warm weather, sunshine and a peaceful lifestyle. Its natural beauty, easy access to the sea, nature and excellent internet represent the perfect calling card of this beautiful village to attract digital nomads from all over the world ”, as mentioned by the mentors of this project.
“Digital nomads are forced to work online and travel full time around the world. For many workers, this was a dream situation that has now become reality, with the announcement of millions of companies that will forever embrace teleworking, such as Facebook, Twitter, Out-systems and Talk-desk”.
Digital nomads look for beautiful, attractive places with good weather, good food, unforgettable nature activities and, above all, fast internet.
Therefore, according to the project, Madeira Island “has the ideal conditions to attract digital nomads due to its natural beauty, nature activities, culture and fantastic weather conditions through all year”, and it is urgent to create an integrated strategy to attract this market, in order to make Madeira also known as one of the best places in the world to work at a distance.
