In 2019, as we worked on “Around The World in 250 Coworking Spaces,” we had plans to visit Bali to better understand the mix of local and international remote workers and digital nomads. But then 2020 arrived and our plans changed. Despite this, we had already learned about Outpost and were intrigued by its warm, community-focused approach. With the pandemic causing many nomads to leave Bali, we wondered how Outpost, a space targeting remote workers, would adapt. Fast forward to today, Outpost is thriving and in this story, we'll explore how they made it happen.

Who’s behind the featured space?
Meet David Abraham and Bryan Stewart, co-founders of Outpost. Both from the US, their work experiences in various regions sparked their interest in remote work and the remote worker community, leading to the opening of the first Outpost in Bali in 2016.
Now, if you wonder how the two met, David explains: “We went to the same graduate school, although different years. We met through our alumni network at Tufts University”
