OUR CURRICULUM

Our students are typically motivated by an interest in social entrepreneurship and ownership of their own companies, rather than getting their tech startup idea off-the-ground. Because of this, we’ve created a course that aims to demystify entrepreneurship by giving you the skills, confidence, and mindset to create viable products/services as solutions to the problems you find in the world.

To create this course we started with two things:

  • Innovative Startup Tools used by the world's leading tech companies
    Companies like Google, AirBnB, and Spotify
  • Problem solving frameworks used by entrepreneurs leading remarkable lives.
    People like, Tim Ferris, Seth Godin, & Yvon Chouinard

We wanted to look at the people leading the most remarkable lives and the companies having the biggest impact in the world so that we could learn from what they had in common.

Ultimately, the Nomad Academy Program is an intensely distilled version of what we found: The most agile method for launching a fulfilling, purpose-driven, entrepreneurial career.

WHERE WE GO

Places we travel to

The countries we select are always a combination of vibrant cultural experiences and entrepreneurial communities. We pick cities where you’re likely to live and work alongside a host of freelancers, nomads, and founders - so that you find inspiration from beyond the other students, mentors, and coaches on the program. Since 2017, we’ve been to SE Asia and Latin America three times respectively with our students and we’ve found that it’s the perfect way to break your routines, habits, and push you to the edge of their comfort zone.

WHERE WE CO WORK

Good co-working environments are essential to our program because you’ll be spending the best part of three months launching your own company in them. We only select spaces that have high-speed wifi, plenty of space for you to collaborate or to work in private, as well as amenities that will see you through the day. When possible, we’ll select co-working spaces with some added benefits like networking opportunities, events, 24/7 access, and meditation rooms.

Since 2017, we’ve been to SE Asia and Latin America three times respectively with our students and we’ve found Where you live in each city is extremely important to us. We ensure that you always have clean, private rooms with en-suite bathrooms. Sometimes you’ll have a studio, other times you may have shared apartments and we’ll always try to find places with kitchens and access to wifi.

Safety is important to us too and we’ll always pick the safest cities and neighbourhoods that are available to us. Remember this is part of the program too, we can’t guarantee that everything will always go exactly to plan, and these are the experiences we all learn from when traveling to new places.  it’s the perfect way to break your routines, habits, and push you to the edge of their comfort zone.

note: cohorts may sometimes be broken into groups depending on what accommodation is available

Past Locations

"I felt unfulfilled, I could not resume my sense of achievement to a higher salary or a promotion.I was lost but knew that what I was doing then was not right for me."

The Nomad Academy accidentally found my way, I had not yet thought of next steps besides looking for a different job but when I saw the alternative they were offering I applied, with my heart, this was not an other job application, they are not looking for qualifications, they are looking for personalities. I was taken. Flew over to Bali and got it all started. By now, two weeks past our good byes I can truly say that this experience has equipped me personally with the mindset to not fall back to being an unfulfilled individual.You get what you put in it, and by this it can be many different things: completing several courses to build your new profile, networking to start building a portfolio of clients to take you forward on your digital nomad path, taking the time for yourself to reflect at last. The latter is what truly changed me which without this group of great people (and I weigh my words) would not have been possible.Be sure that your tribe will be amazing, Zeeger, Andy and Harry have already proven themselves on that at degrees I could not have foreseen.If you made it up to here, you probably want to apply :)

WHAT YOU GET

When designing our programs, we only ask one question; what are the most valuable things you’ll need to create a career you love?

Professional Coaching

Our coaches are here for you to explore new ideas, help you to get ready to launch your own company, and to help you get the most out of this program. 

Each of the coaches are highly educated, specialised, and experienced professionals who you’ll have direct contact with throughout the program. Whether it’s motivating you to throw out an old idea, giving you feedback on your pitch, or working with you through the course, they’ll be your professional guide as you kick start your own company.

Read more
PERSONAL MENTORING

Every one of our mentors has been trained to give you the support, habits, and mindset to define your new narrative and to shape an entrepreneurial career around it.

Our personal development mentors are comprised of trained yogis, psychologists, well-practiced meditators, former professional athletes, and experienced professionals.

If you want to be motivated by your work then your work needs to be a reflection of your own goals and aims in life. This is one of the fundamental ideas of our program.

Defining your goals isn’t easy. It’s not even something that professionals are encouraged to do because it’s typically assumed that you’ll be happy working towards someone else’s goals. And that’s okay for some people, but we know you’re not here for that reason. 

Our mentors understand the journey you’re on because they’ve been on the same journey themselves.

Read more
Online startup course

Our online course has been designed to provide the freedom and diversity of an online course, whilst also giving you the support, coaching, and practical steps to push you to launch your own product/service.

Online courses let you learn from anywhere in the world, they give you access to resources whenever you need them, you can gain insight from thought leaders and market leaders, and you don’t have to work on a schedule set by a university.

The possibilities are endless. So why do so many of them have such a limited impact on someone's career? They seem to be a way for people to put an extra certificate on their Linkedin page rather than to help you launch something, found something, or change something in a real, practical way.

We think a big part of this issue comes from a lack of accountability and support. Which is why we coach you throughout the course as well as encouraging you to take action and collaborate with your cohort.

Read more
Accommodation

Where you live in each city is extremely important to us. We ensure that you always have clean, private rooms with en-suite bathrooms.

Sometimes you’ll have a studio, other times you may have shared apartments and we’ll always try to find places with kitchens and access to wifi. Safety is important to us too and we’ll always try to pick the safer cities and neighbourhoods that are available to us.  

Read more
COWORKING SPACES

Good co-working environments are essential to our program because you’ll be spending the best part of three months launching your own company in them. We only select spaces that have high-speed wifi, plenty of space for you to collaborate or to work in private, as well as amenities that will see you through the day.

When possible, we’ll select co-working spaces with some added benefits like networking opportunities, events, 24/7 access, and meditation rooms. 

Read more
EPIC EXPERIENCES

Doing things that make you feel alive is a huge part of understanding what motivates you in life. Just as much as getting out of your comfort zone helps you to understand more about yourself and what you're capable of.

Our programs integrate a number of experiences that help you to form new habits and discover things you didn't know you were capable of.

Typically, these experiences are a meditation retreat, a fitness bootcamp, and the opportunity to travel in the countries you visit as part of the program.

Read more
SLOW TRAVEL

Travel has always been central to what we do at Nomad Academy. It was the first path we took when looking for fulfilment ourselves and is a direct means for defining your personal narrative.

When you travel the world, meet new people, experience new cultures, reflect on yourself, and gain new perspectives, you’re better equipped to define what you find meaningful and fulfilling.

Just as importantly, travel forces you outside of your comfort zone. This is where we want you to be as you redefine your goals and begin a new career journey. Stretching your own ideas of what you consider yourself capable of and proving to yourself that you can adapt quickly in new environments. 

Getting uncomfortable is a big part of our program because when you’re uncomfortable you’re adapting, learning, and growing faster than ever.

Note: The price for the Onsite Program includes your flights between countries - but not your flights to the first country, or from the last country.

Read more
WORKSHOPS

There are two types of people: People that give workshops and people that don’t.

Workshops are central to the Nomad Academy Program and they’ll be central to what you do too because you’ll be giving them almost as much as we will.

They’re a fantastic way to share and explore personal and professional ideas that you find meaning in, as well as giving you experiences that require you to mediate, teach, and lead a room full of people. 

Read more
Alumni community

We spend a lot of time carefully selecting no more than 30 people per program from thousands of applicants.

The reason we’re selective is simple.

We don’t just want people that can pay for the program, or people with the most experience. We want people from diverse backgrounds, with unique experience, with their own thoughts and opinions on the world, and - perhaps most importantly - who are ready to truly push themselves to the edge of their limits.

This means our alumni network is unlike anyone else's. Smaller, more diverse, and super-entrepreneurial.

Our alumni come from over 70 countries, 94% of them work in entrepreneurial careers and you’ll join this community for on-going support after the program.

“Today I don't think it's crazy to live anywhere in the world, have my own company or have the chance to work remote, but the best part is that I surrounded myself with a community that were a great support to help me improve”

Martin Fleischer, 32 years old, Spain

WHAT IS NOMAD ACADEMY?

In 2017, having taken a number of steps to find a fulfilling career, including; backpacking, master's programs, meditation, yoga, internships, startup careers, and entrepreneurship. We realised that we needed to create something that connected the dots between fulfilling experiences, education, and startups. We needed to create it because there wasn’t a clear answer to the question: “Where do I go to find a fulfilling career?”

The solution was as much for ourselves as for our friends and colleagues that were equally uninspired and burned out by their “respectable” careers. We were all looking for the same thing: Ownership, Direction, and Fulfilment.

The Nomad Academy Programs are educational experiences that shift the focus away from the typical financial outcomes e.g. a promotion, a bigger salary, etc. Instead, our program directs students toward solving the problems they see in the world by giving them the entrepreneurial skills and autonomy to create a solution in the form of a startup.

We want our students to have the opportunity to choose what they do with their lives, to have the ability to succeed in doing it, and to find fulfilment in the pursuit of it.

WHO Is the Program FOR

Not for people motivated by climbing the corporate ladder.
We aren’t for people that want a pay rise, promotion, or vacation; and this isn’t even for people that want to found and sell their tech startup within 3 years. 

But for professionals who know there’s more to life.
Who feel there’s more to life than sitting at a desk, waiting for the weekend and being a cog in a machine. Who won’t settle for a normal life.

Who are brave enough to do something different.
They're willing to live life on their own terms, find purpose, and solve the problems they see in the world. Even if they don't have an idea yet, they're driven to make change.

Our students are typically:
- 24 to 35 year old professionals
- 3 to 10 years of experience
- From over 72 countries and counting
- Background in law, finance, marketing, creative services, etc.

How it works

Define your narrative by exploring your direction and purpose

Get a startup skillset and build the confidence to found your own company

Join a supportive community of entrepreneurial professionals


We’re the world’s first academy built to get driven individuals out of conventional careers, and on the path to owning what they do – working on what matters to them, doing things that make them come alive and living life on their own terms.

FAQ

1. who gets selected and what's the selection process?

We select applicants based on their openness to new experiences, drive to create something remarkable, and unique backgrounds. Applicants must be transparent, highly capable and ready to push themselves outside their comfort zones.

Our students are typically 24 - 34 years old, with a few years work behind them from law, finance, creative agencies etc. They're from across the world, from USA and Europe to Australia and Latin America.

The process itself is straightforward:

1. Request an invite to any of our programs by clicking the apply now button

2. Charlie - our Director of Admissions - reviews your info and If he thinks you have the potential to join our next program you’ll get accepted to the application stage.

3. If your application is successful, you'll be invited to talk to the admissions team via video call

4. Once you’ve spoken with our team, we’ll review your full application

5. Once accepted you’ll be called by a member of the admissions team

6. You’ll then be in touch with our operations, coaching, and admissions team to get you ready for the program.

2. What’s the structure of the program, is there an agenda, and how strict is the agenda?

You can view a full breakdown of the curriculum on all of our program pages.
You can also download an example itinerary on the Onsite program page.

Our programs aim to teach you the startup skills and mindset for you to be able to found your own purpose-driven company. You’ll be learning weekly units, pitching monthly, and working with your mentors and coaches to iterate your ideas into a viable, investable startup by the end of the 12th week.

The agenda is reasonably strict in terms of the units you’ll be tasked with completing each week. However, you will have free time each day and what you do with this time is up to you. Our program directors will be able to recommend options to you. Often our student spends time traveling to neighbouring areas, visiting sites of natural beauty, practicing their language skills on the locals, or working on side-projects.

3. Will there be free time for other activities (learning language, adventures, etc.)?

Yes, you will have free time each day and one the weekends; what you do with this time is up to you. Often our student spends time traveling to neighbouring areas, visiting sites of natural beauty, practicing their language skills on the locals, or working on side-projects.

4. Do you offer financial support?

Currently, we don't offer financial aid or scholarships. However, some countries do offer schemes to assist financially with study abroad programs.

A significant number of students also get their Nomad Academy program funded by their employers. To begin with, you can direct them to our employer's page; and as you progress through our selection process we can give you further advice on sponsorship.

5. How do you keep it relevant to each person’s goals/needs?

We achieve this by working with you towards the goals that you identify in the first weeks of the program. Ultimately the skills, mindset, and experiences that we share don’t differ person-to-person, but the mentoring and coaching aspects of the program will help you to use these in the way that is most effective in helping you to achieve your own personal goals.

6. Where are we staying, what does it look like?

We often partner with the co-living / co-working companies such as Outpost (SE Asia) and Selina (Latin America). More often than not, we house people in apartments of 2-3 bedrooms and joint living spaces. If either of those are not an option, we go with hotel brands such as Hotel R.

Accommodation will always include a clean, private en-suite room when possible. If this is not available we’ll let you know ahead of time. Ultimately, we choose co-living spaces because it’s important that you bond with your fellow students, but we also want you to have a safe, quiet room where you can get plenty of rest.

7. What if I'm not happy after the first few days/weeks?

Considering that this is a program designed to get you outside of your comfort zone there’s a good chance that - at times - you’ll want to return to the comfortable and familiar and will look for ways out. But you’ll get over this pretty quickly.

Genuine complaints about the experience, coaching, mentoring, and experiences can also be taken up with your mentor and the company will assess them on a case-by-case basis. It’s also important to us that you do get the results you want from our program. Nomad Academy wouldn’t exist in its current form without honest feedback from hundreds of students. So we urge you to tell us how we can improve.

It's important to be aware that we are not a travel company. We are an education startup that uses travel as part of our overall program to stretch professionals to the edge of their comfort zones. 

8. Do i need a business idea & What are the outcomes of the program?

In short, no. You do not need a business idea to apply to the program, just the motivation to make change.

The program is designed to give you the inspiration, community and skills to find an idea that you want to turn into a viable business. The first month of the program is focussed on assessing your personal values, exploring business ideas, being more aware of your strengths and passions to discover what problem you want to solve in the world. 

What you do need to know is that you are willing to devote your time to creating an entrepreneurial career by launching your own company - or by joining a purpose driven startup.

Generally, the outcomes we aim to provide are:

- For you to have founded your own startup
- For you to have defined a new narrative and new career goals
- For you to have identified the problems you want to solve during your career
- For you to have the entrepreneurial skills to found viable company that seeks to solve these problems.
- For you to have formed new habits and a new mindset to enable you to persevere toward this goal.

Our alumni have founded companies, joined purpose-driven startups, and ultimately taken ownership of what they do with their lives. You can view information about both our alumni and the companies they’ve founded on our outcomes page.

9. What’s the curriculum and what will I learn?

Ultimately, we want you to graduate our program with three things:

1. A clearly defined narrative comprised of your personal goals and values.

2. The entrepreneurial skills, habits, and mindset to have founded a viable business and to found viable businesses in the future.

3. To have developed a support network that will foster your entrepreneurial career for life.

You can download our curriculum and view the full details of each of our programs on all of our program pages (as well as using the button below).

10. USP. How is this program different from other programs, why should I choose Nomad Academy?

The main difference between Nomad Academy and other programs are:

- MBA programs don’t help you to found a company and they take a long time to complete
- Accelerators and Pre-accelerators are typically for people looking to get rich from proprietary tech
- Backpacking and Retreats help you to redefine your goals and values, but they don’t give you practical skills
- Career Coaches help you to define your narrative and goals but don’t give you the skills to achieve them
- Study abroad programs don’t give you the skills to solve the problems you see in the world

We’ve tried all of these solutions ourselves and found that they didn’t give us the skills, direction, and support we needed to take ownership of our careers.

Nomad Academy is unique because it takes elements of each of these solutions and provides a program that aims to help people to create their own fulfilling careers.
