SMARTWAY MISSION IS TO CREATE A REMOTE WORK ECOSYSTEM
where Companies, Employees and Local Communities can thrive sinergically
A VIRTUOUS CIRCLE IS BORN
Our story started at the end of 2020 in Montepulciano, Tuscany. After almost a year of forced remote work within the four walls of our homes, we started to feel overwhelmed. So we thought that a period of holiday working would have been great to improve our mental and physical wellness and pur productivity.
Booking through traditional platforms?
We did not want to be just a «guest» in someone’s apartment. We thought that if we had to stay for a long period, we would have liked to mingle with the locals and not ending up isolated or in the usual «digital nomads» bubble.
We would have liked to stay far away from big cities but have options for cool activities to do after work, for exploring the place and really meet with locals.
Was it a shared sentiment?
We run a large survey, we collected interest from 1000+ people… and that’s how Smartway was born!
WHO WE ARE
Smartway is the pioneer and Italian market leader in workation solutions, bringing together remote workers, their companies, locals, municipalities and NGOs to redefine the world of remote work towards a fairer future.
Smartway has launched four main Smartway Towns in Italy and is about to launch seven more in the coming months, allowing thousands of employees to be happy, tens of companies to be more productive and local communities to be more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable.
WHAT WE DO
Through our platform, we provide an end-to-end solution for companies to attract and retain their best talents, for the employees to be happier and more productive and for local communities in our Towns to grow sustainably.
We see it as a win-win-win.
You decide Town and period, we take care of making you happy and productive, while generating a positive social and economic impact.
WE WANT TO CHANGE THE REMOTE WORKING PARADIGM
We are not a «good WiFi» + «Large Desk» filter
on a housing rental platform
WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
We are not a «good WiFi» + «Large Desk» filter on a housing rental platform.
And we are not the enabler of digital nomads’ bubbles in some exotic island.
What makes us really unique is the impact that we generate on the local social fabric through our hybrid, diverse Communities enabled by our Town Angels. Ah, and the fact that you are going to have a great time mingling with locals and will just want to try out another Town – we have seen it often but every time is amazing!
OUR GUIDING VALUES
Everybody talks about Community.
Everybody talks about economic and social empowerment, about diversity and sustainability.
The difference is that we did not have a product and then started to think about how to insert those values into it. Creating real, diverse communities enabling a virtuous circle of positive impact is Smartway backbone and the reason why it has been funded, and Smartway could simply not exist if those values were disattended.
Join the remote working revolution, stay in touch with us and start working around from amazing places!
