Mission & Value
The Regional Government of Madeira, through Startup Madeira, has developed the structure for a pilot project – Digital Nomads Madeira Islands. This initiative aims to attract digital nomads to Madeira and Porto Santo.
Madeira has the perfect conditions to attract digital nomads with its natural beauty, activities in nature, culture, and fantastic climatic conditions throughout the year. This project aims to prepare, promote, and create a unique community with digital nomads from all over the world.
This initiative gathered the conditions to create a Digital Nomad Village at Ponta do Sol. A unique pilot project that aims to blend digital nomads with the local businesses and Ponta do Sol inhabitants, turning it into a community of people that have a strong positive impact in the village, both socially and economically.
Knowing the needs of nomads, adapting products and services to their requirements, involving the community and private entities (hotels, restaurants, local accommodation, consultants, lawyers, rent-a-cars, creatives, and entrepreneurs from different areas) were some of the challenges identified for this pilot phase.
Now, the MVP is tested and the results are overwhelming. This project will continue, at least, for 3 more years (2024), and the Nomad Village for 1 more year (2022). Digital Nomads are invited to come to Madeira Islands, and work from our Nomad Village – Ponta do Sol, and/or in other locations, such as Calheta, Funchal, Machico, Porto Santo, Porto Moniz, Santa Cruz, Santana,…
