Exploring the Impacts of Digital Nomads and Cross-Border Gentrification with Lauren Razavi at SGF.

With digital nomads and global gentrification being such hot-button issues for not just the travel industry, but also cities and countries, we felt this an important moment to discuss the driving forces, global visa hurdles, and impacts on communities as this trend continues.

Lauren Razavi is Executive Director of Plumia, the global mobility think tank of Y Combinator alumni company SafetyWing, which has so far raised $50 million in venture capital towards its mission of building a global social safety net for digital nomads. A globally-renowned expert in her field, Lauren has delivered talks for the United Nations, European Commission, The Next Web, and Tech Beach Retreat, and published with media titles including Wired, The Guardian, NPR and the BBC. Her book, Global Natives: How Digital Nomads Will Shape the Future of Work, Travel, Innovation & Migration, is about the rise of borderless living and the work from anywhere movement, and she writes an award-winning Substack newsletter of the same name.
