‘Grow Remote’ – a new nationwide group who aim to uncover and build a full community around remote working will hold one of their first events in this area in the Spool Factory in Boyle tonight February 12th.
The informal get together is open to all remote workers, home workers, co-working managers, freelancers, employers and nomads and commences at 7.30pm.
Grow Remote believe that both Roscommon and Leitrim are very suitable for remote working. The groups aim is to uncover and build a full community around remote working in this region, and the first thing they plan to do is meet up and get the ball rolling.
The first meeting in this area will be held in The Spool Factory in Boyle on Tuesday February 12th with a second event in The Hive in Carrick on Shannon the following night.
According to the organisers “We would love to meet remote workers, job seekers, employers and anyone else interested in developing the sector for a free meet up. All are welcome”

There are over 200,000 remote workers in Ireland and most of these people don’t know each other. The aim of Grow Remote is to build a community and ecosystem around that number and then grow it so that we can increase the number of employment opportunities available in local communities across the country. Grow Remote Local Chapters can connect remote jobs, remote workers and local communities.
The Grow Remote community consists of co-working managers, freelancers, nomads, remote workers and remote working companies who believe that all 3 i.e. jobs, workers and communities need to move together to enable our communities to thrive.
