If you’re a founder, CEO, Head of Remote, or People Ops executive at a remote company, apply today.
Access to Running Remote Community is $490/year and includes a free ticket to the Running Remote conference. No payment will be asked of you until your application has been approved.
Running Remote Community is for founders & executives (i.e. C-level executives, HR and People Ops professionals, Heads of Remote) who are actively running and leading remote-first (or hybrid) companies with over 5 employees.
The community is not intended for non executive managers, junior employees, marketing & sales professionals, remote work consultants and companies with less than 5 employees (whether that be contractors or full-time employees).
We are vetting every application to ensure high-quality connections and opportunities. To apply, we ask you to fill in a short questionnaire to understand your unique challenges and expectations. We’re reviewing applications on a weekly basis, so expect an answer from us within 5 working days.
Once accepted, we will send you a link to pay for your membership so that you can get access to our Slack workspace and other resources and we can begin the onboarding process.
We understand that your time is valuable, so it is absolutely up to you how much time you’ll spend in the community.
However, we have consistently seen that you get out what you put in: Often, the biggest contributors are the biggest beneficiaries.
The feedback we consistently receive is how much our remote leaders appreciate the true unity and collaboration within our community. They also especially love getting together at our annual Running Remote conferences, as it feels like a face-to-face reunion of people they’ve gotten to know so well online.
Given that the yearly membership includes a free ticket to the Running Remote conference, the community is priced to be accessible for remote leaders at $490 per year.
In order to maintain the quality of connections, opportunities, and information, all applications are thoroughly vetted and only founders & leaders of remote-first established companies are eligible to join.
We do not. Trials make more sense with things like SaaS products, where once you’re in you get a general understanding of what a full commitment will look like and the capabilities that are available to you.
We work to make sure that the community stays a relationship-centric thought exchange and relationships cannot be built in a short month-long trial period.
We value the time of our community members as well as the content that is distributed. Part of the vetting process is to make sure that people who join will actively contribute to the community, can relate to the caliber of what is discussed, and are not there purely to sell their own projects or perceive it as a great leads list.
Financial commitment is asked to support the effort from our team that goes into curating this community, organizing monthly events, peer-to-peer masterminds, personal introductions and more. We do provide a script to send to your employer if the Running Remote Community is something you’d like reimbursed as part of your education credits or benefits.
The yearly membership includes a free ticket to the Running Remote conference, making it a fantastic investment for a business into their remote work efforts.
