Saltwater sets the standard for digital nomads and remote working professionals in Croatia.

You already know where you want to be – it’s now about working smarter.

It’s the most exciting time to be working, self-employed, in a career-transition or side hustlin’.

Working remotely presents a freedom which can feed our wanderlust while also earning.

Unlike the days when I started, when it was work, save, travel, return… sometimes to the drudgery and dread of a modern day dungeon (the humble cubicle). Not so any more.

We now have the freedom to choose where we work. And who with.

I founded Saltwater after taking my job with me, and not wanting to be alone in an apartment. And a lot of research into ergonomic chairs, indoor plants and office feng shui. I’ve been involved in community events since I can recall. The Art of Gathering inspires me – and making conscious choices to the time we have – be it alone to focus, or in company, making meaningful connections. Everything we do is so you can get out and seize the opportunities in front of you.

With Saltwater, we’ve created a place to connect and deliver a diverse, growing portfolio of business and community projects.
