In August 2014, two friends dreamed of exploring the world while building their careers. They shared the belief that great work can be done from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection, and that people are most creative and productive when they’re inspired by their surroundings.
They created a website posing a simple question: “Who wants to travel together for a year while working remotely?”
On the first day, more than 1,000 people signed up. Since then, Remote Year has helped over a thousand people take their career to the next level while traveling the world.
Prior to starting Remote Year, Greg founded oBaz, a fashion company that was acquired by Groupon in 2013. He holds BBA in finance and strategy from the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business.
Sam spent 3 years as a consultant at Bain & Company and a year as Head of Business Development at Vokal Interactive before starting Remote Year. He also holds a BBA from University of Michigan's Ross School of Business.
