Teleport, Inc is a free web app working to completely change the process of moving abroad. With their software, they allow you to browse basic details of over 100 cities around the world, virtually exploring the most optimal locations and helping to streamline the task of preparing (and executing) the actual move. Aiming to make “physically rearranging the human population” that much easier, Teleport is working towards a future of global free movement.
Asking a series of questions about budget, income, housing requirements and the like, Teleport operates similarly to an online dating site, but at the end of the questionnaire instead of potential mates, you get potential homes. Their data helps make the research for an upcoming relocation much more basic, refining choices down to the perfectly personalized preferences. Focusing on helping people and businesses connect around the world, the company seeks to create a diverse worldwide workforce.
Designed by some of the entrepreneurs behind the explosively successful Skype, the team is now working to encourage diversification of job opportunities and potential applicants, no matter what the geographic separation between the two is. As their company site explains, they “strive for a culture as fluid, diverse and borderless as the world [they’re] serving.”
