WORKATION© is an app that makes it easy to find a place to meet or work on-the-fly and a powerful solution for turning your unused space into real money!
Having a location-based job was a by-product of the industrial revolution. We went to the same place every day, did our work and went home.
We travel more, are exceptionally connected and many of us never completely “clock out”, so working on-the-fly is a natural progression.
Today’s tech means that most people can work from anywhere – and the amount of people becoming digitally nomadic is growing. In 2016, 43% of Americans worked remotely1, and it’s estimated that 70% of UK employers will adopt agile work policies by 20202.
An app that makes it convenient to find workspaces on-the-fly, and a powerful solution that turns unused space into money.
This proudly South African idea has global scalability as a priority, as we pioneer a new way to disconnect work from location. The app will be launched first in South Africa, rapidly followed by territories such as USA, Korea and Japan.
Essentially, WORKATION© uses tech to empower people to spend their time working on their own terms. Working on-the-fly isn’t something new - the concept simply leverages an existing, growing behavior by giving users the exact spaces they need – whenever and wherever they need them. WORKATION© is built on providing contextually relevant convenience.
Nomads are people who work, meet or present on-the-fly.
Hosts are property owners who make idle spaces highly profitable by turning them into WORKATION© Stations.
A Nomad sets search parameters (location, price, workspace type, facilities etc.) and browses through contextually-relevant WORKATION© Station listings.
Upon finding a WORKATION© Station that suits their needs, they request it and await a “Handshake” (i.e. the Host’s acceptance of the Nomad’s request).
The Nomad arrives at the WORKATION© Station, uses it to work, meet or present, and leaves. Both parties provide reviews and ratings and payment is cashless.
are able to advertise using contextually-relevant communications. For example, a food delivery business could market food platters to a Nomad who books a boardroom for a workshop.
provide added value infrastructure to the WORKATION© ecosystem, with services and tech (like WiFi or IoT technology).
WORKATION© is a contextually relevant and convenient omnichannel solution that is easy to access and use anywhere, any time, on-the-fly!

WORKATION© will become the principal global community of nomads, hosts, value added service providers and marketers … Without owning a single piece of property.
