Would you like a coworking & coliving space in Panama?


in Panama by @oricoh 7yr  | 15 comments

Hi everybody,
We are at the beginning of a very interesting journey to eventually establish work spaces and accommodation in Panama.
But before we start, weโ€™d love to figure out how Panama is perceived by you, US time zone and currency are any advantages ? Would you prefer more urbanic or beachfront locations ?
All feedback will be highly appreciated.
Cheers =)

I was in bocas last weekend, there is a group of digital nomads hanging around Selinas Hostel, the place is awesome, super friendly and wifi is ok/goodโ€ฆ I loved Bocas, definitely planning to come back soon :slight_smile: I am currently in Panama city

VERY INTERESTED

I am beginning my nomadic life in 2 months and Bocas del Toro is the first destination Iโ€™m looking at so Iโ€™m pretty amazed to read this post on my very first day in NomadList.
Definitely interested :slightly_smiling:
Keep me posted!

Iโ€™m spending the weekend in Bocas currently, but Iโ€™ve been based in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica these past few months. Iโ€™m finding Bocas to be friendlier, safer, better accommodations, and cheaper than the Costa Rican carribean coast.

So, Iโ€™m think of re-locating to Bocas, and if there was a coworking space that would seal the deal.

@Conni you nailed it =), Bocas are definitely in our plans
@suuzin Weโ€™re aiming to open 3 different locations around Panama in early 2016, so we hope until winter 2016, everything weโ€™ll be set and running.
How much would you pay for worksapce & accomodation for 1 month ? (Of course it would be possible to come for less,itโ€™s just easier to assess)
Anyway, I would love to have a talk with you on Slack or any other platform to better undersatd your needs.
Thanks for feedback, have a great day =)

STRONGLY interested. In terms of payment, depends on what Iโ€™ve got coming in but Iโ€™d say at the moment under $100/mnth (which might be doable in Panama). If I can get over there in time, would be willing to help out too.

US currency, time zone are some of my top reasons for wanting to move :slight_smile: No preference between urbanic or beachfront really, Panama City seems quite noisy by metro standards though so beachfront might be where to go. Theres already at least one coworking space in Casco Viejo though I think but nothing in Coronado which seems like it would be my first preference. Bocas seems rougher but Iโ€™d check it out.

OH. More like I missed the co-living part. I just assumed it was yet another standard co-working space lol. For co-living I have no idea, it would depend what it was like. I wouldnโ€™t go over 1k, thereโ€™s the 0 for you :slight_smile:

I didnโ€™t make it to Panama while in Costa Rica this year, but have heard good things about it, and itโ€™s cheaper, and attractive to expats who want to settle and run businesses there, so Iโ€™ve read. I might be interested for winter 2016. Iโ€™ve heard mixed things about Bocas, but a friend who started there and traveled west, and then up into the wild parts of Costa Rica had a great time.

Video chat coworking solutions?


in Brazil by @essentiallyint 1yr 1 year ago  | 2 comments

I am new to working out of coworking spaces. My business entails a lot of video conferences. I haven't chosen a specific coworking space yet but generally, what are the potential solutions for this? I have a microphone and headphones but still fell like it may be inconsiderate to take the calls anywhere in the coworking space. For a solo person, what are some general solutions? Are there usually options to rent a private room by the hour with just enough room to set up my microphone and laptop? Sidenote: any coworking space recommendations in Florianapolis, Brazil would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hey Nomads, would love to know any thoughts here.

Top of the list are currently Tenerife, Lagos/Ericeira (Portugal) & Malta??

Would love to know if anyone can vouch for these at this time of year.

Beautiful beach would be the dream. Basically European Bali! I'm sure something many of us are searching for.

Thanks a million. Much love.

Cheap Cities in Mexico & South America with Fastest Wifi


in Mexico by @jnomad30 2yr 2 years ago  | 3 comments

Hi Guys,
Iโ€™m planning out my next stops after leaving Medellin, Colombia soon where I can hunker down and get some work done with fast wifi and cheap living. Will be in Mexico first so starting a look there but wondering if coming back down to South America might make more sense?
My main concerns are budget and fast enough wifi for me to work from home. Other considerations are some nomad community (ideally also some English speaking expats as my Spanish is basic) and warm enough weather.
Thanks in advance!

Foreigner owned Coworking business in Malaysia


in Malaysia by @newyam 3yr 3 years ago  | 0 comments

Heyo folks! The idea to open up an own coworking space in Malaysia has been on my mind for quite a while and I would like to reach out on foreigners being a business owner/co working space owner in Malaysia, there are a lot of questions that would follow up but most importantly is to reach out to someone with experience.

Ideally would be someone who runs a coworking space in Malaysia, second best would be to just come in touch with a foreign business owner in Malaysia.
Cheers

Estonia E-Residency & CFC


in Estonia by @edusantorini 3yr 3 years ago  | 7 comments

So, Iโ€™ve been looking into e-residency and moving my business to Estonia the past few weeks.
Iโ€™m still a tax resident in Germany and therefore fear Iโ€™ll be suspect to CFC laws. I somehow canโ€™t find any reliable info on this and I donโ€™t feel like reading through the whole law, so just wondering if anyone knows how CFC laws in EU countries come into practice. What taxes do I need to pay exactly? As soon as I cash out (dividends), as far as I can see I need to pay 20% income tax in Estonia. Then what? Of course, I would need to pay income tax in Germany. What taxes do I need to pay besides these?
And if I keep the money in Estonia/reinvest it, am I right that I wouldnโ€™t need to pay any taxes at all? Only for the money I cash out of Estonia/the business?

Iโ€™m by the way not doing this to evade taxes, taxes are secondary. I primarily simply want to move my business activities out of Germany + the all-digital concept and the bookkeeping service of agencies like leapIN are interesting.

Whatโ€™s a good European call & SMS forwarding service?


by @adrienbetweets 4yr 3 years ago  | 5 comments

Hi all

What do you guys use for receiving both sms & calls on a European phone number?

Iโ€™d like to have a phone number that does not change for at least 1 or 2 years.

I did my homework & found this thread but itโ€™s only about US services so I donโ€™t think itโ€™s relevant: Whatโ€™s a good US call and SMS forwarding service?
Also, I looked into Google Hangout but it doesnโ€™t support European phone numbers.

Best coworking space in Medellin?


in Medellรญn , Colombia by @adele 4yr 3 years ago  | 6 comments

Hi there,

Iโ€™m considering a month or two in Medellin and wondered what the co-working space options are like. I want something more than a cafe, so happy to pay the going rate. I spent a couple of months at Hubud in Bali earlier this year and loved it, but realise that Iโ€™ve set the bar pretty high.

Has anyone used Epicenter? I read somewhere it is pretty busy. Any other options?

Suggestions much appreciated.

Which coworking spaces are open 24/7?


by @yako 4yr 3 years ago  | 13 comments

Does anyone know of any coworking space open 24hs somewhere around the world? Sometimes because of my line of work I need to be awake when everyone is sleeping on the country I am in (but I know I am not the only one!). It would be amazing to share that time at a coworking space with others who like to work at night or who have to be awake. Does anyone know of any coworking space open 24hs somewhere in the world?
