Digitala nomader: Hur utvecklingen inom digital kommunikation påverkar gränserna för entreprenörer
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Working from a distance rather than at the office is getting easier with the rise of current
digital technologies, making digital nomadism an alternative to local entrepreneurship. This
study investigates 5 digital nomads in their current carrier as geographically unbound
entrepreneurs with a qualitative interview method and analyses how they are using digital
communications to their advantages, what downsides they might experience and the upsides
of working this way which resulted in a framework. This study shows a lifestyle that opens
up for an efficient workstyle with a potentially high life quality through use of outsourcing,
digital communications and geographical freedom. The study also shows a paradox of using
the internet to be free from traditional bounds by relying the business model on it and can be
the only thing that binds the digital nomad.
