About Venture with Impact:
Ann Davis – world traveler, lady-boss, and brain cancer survivor – founded Venture with Impact, LLC (VWI) in 2016 with the mission to rewrite the narrative on remote work, including social impact as a key component. In the process, VWI aims to expose professionals to new cultures, people, and ideas, so that they may become more informed and empathetic world citizens.
As evidenced by the rising trend of digital nomadism, many workers are abandoning their cubicles, drawn by a desire to maintain a career while nurturing an adventurous identity. At the same time, “voluntourism” is one of the fastest-growing segments in the travel industry today. Davis, recognizing these trends, found a way to combine the desires for travel and altruism into a unique program.
VWI brings together diverse groups of professionals, provides them with everything they need to work remotely abroad, and offers them the opportunity to explore beyond work and give back to the local
communities on a pro bono basis. Participants connect with local nonprofit partners that fit with their interests, professional skills and schedules. In-country staff also plan cultural activities and weekend trips, allowing participants to dig deeper into the local culture and create bonds with their fellow ‘Venture Nomads’.
