Providing global travel medical and health insurance for digital nomads and remote workers

SafetyWing provides global insurance and benefits for digital nomads and remote workers. Designed by a fully remote team themselves, their software-based healthcare and finance products are creating a global social safety net for the borderless world.

"There's a rapid growth of digital nomads that work for themselves and don't have access to the same security an employer provides. SafetyWing is solving this problem, making sure that insurance is accessible to all. Sten Tamkivi, from our Collective, is one of the other people that believes their vision. Previously an advisor to, he is now one of their investors - showing us the power of the Collective. We’re so impressed by this company’s vision and look forward to seeing their growth going forward."

- Eric Lagier, Managing Partner
