Remote work should be a reality for everyone, no matter where they are based. But if your team is truly distributed, should they be limited by the average salary of their country or city of residence? How do you determine the benefits and compensation you offer to your entire team? This event will be moderated by Sarah Sandnes, the co-founder and CTO of SafetyWing, along with our guests for the panel:
  • 5:30pm - Event starts
  • 6pm - 7pm - Complimentary cocktails & bites
  • 7pm - 8pm - Panel discussion + Q&A
  • 8pm - 10pm - The mingling continues on the beautiful rooftop of the Riley Building!

Sondre co-founded SafetyWing together with Sarah Sandnes and Hans Kjellby. Born in Bergen, Norway, he studied economics and computer science, before starting work as a policy advisor for the government of Norway advising on social policies. After getting frustrated with the slow pace of government change, Sondre first founded SuperSide (YC W16), a platform for freelance designers. It was here he discovered the lack of a safety net for online remote workers. SafetyWing was then born with the aim of building a global social safety net.
