Big News: NomadX Acquires Bali-based HomelessNHappy to Expand Globally
Why NomadX Acquired HomelessNHappy
NomadX has acquired HomelessNHappy, and we couldn’t be more excited. Here’s why, and what you can expect from us going forward.
Great things happen when digital nomads join forces. That’s why we’re so excited to announce at this year’s Web Summit 2019 that NomadX has acquired HomelessNHappy.
In case you’re not familiar with HomelessNHappy, it’s a company based in Bali and created by digital nomads (and fiancés) Oli Nold and Lisa Orth with strong capabilities in global community building for digital nomads, online business coaching, organic social media traffic, and automated sales funnels. NomadX has a history with HomelessNHappy as Oli and Lisa were NomadX Entrepreneurs in Residence in Lisbon in July 2019, and all of their events sold out.
Oli and Lisa fell in love with the NomadX business bringing affordable mid-term housing and global community to digital nomads, and the feeling was mutual with NomadX founders Dave Williams and Jennifer O’Brien. Oli and Lisa started running the NomadX social community and things really started taking off from there. After working together in a consulting capacity over the past three months, we saw the opportunity to more closely align the NomadX property tech platform and lifestyle community for digital nomads with HomelessNHappy’s expertise in global community development and educational programs for digital nomads.
What you can expect from the merger:
- Oli Nold to oversee and run NOMADX business operating units for affordable housing, global community and the launch of its educational programs for digital nomads
- Lisa Orth to lead the further development of training programs, coaching partnerships and masterclasses for digital nomads and entrepreneurs
- Expansion of NomadX affordable housing and community platform to Bali (Canggu and Ubud are two of the top 10 digital nomad destinations globally)
- Launch of educational training designed to help digital professionals transition to becoming digital nomads and learn how to sustain and create a thriving digital nomad lifestyle
All of this will be operating under the NomadX umbrella. NomadX as you know it will still be the same. Scratch that — it will be even better, offering up more tools to help you live your best digital nomad life. We’ll keep you posted with more details as we grow together.
