Lauren Razavi

I'm Lauren Razavi, a writer, strategist and activist working at the intersection of technology, business, policy and human behaviour. I was an early adopter of remote work and have lived as a digital nomad since 2013.

I’m part of the executive team at SafetyWing (YC 2018), where I lead Plumia, the non-profit mission to build an internet country for digital nomads. I also offer expert talks about the future of work, innovation, citizenship, countries and globalisation via The Next Speaker agency.

I'm author of the book Global Natives (Holloway 2022), which looks at the past, present and future of the digital nomad movement, based on extensive research and years of first-hand experience.

My newsletter, Counterflows, shares the best links about remote work, nomads, creativity and travel each week. Join thousands of curious, globally-minded readers by signing up below πŸ’ŒπŸ‘‡
