Our Story

YonderWork developed out of a combination of a love for travel and a need to escape the cube to find inspiration and balance. We live in a time when materialism is being surpassed by the desire to live a life rich with new experiences. We are demanding more fulfillment out of our careers and lives. We don’t want to be restricted by an antiquated 9-5 office environment but prefer creative spaces where we can collaborate across industries and cultures.

In January 2016, we launched YonderWork to provide unique international experiences for participants from around the world to come together for the time of their lives, revitalize, and grow their professional skills. Since then, we have assembled a phenomenal team (below) and have been incredibly inspired by visiting each of our locations. We hope to see you soon!
