About

This is one of those "It's weird but it works!" products. 🤩

FLOWN is a virtual co-working platform that helps users stay focused and beat distractions. It offers structured focus sessions led by expert facilitators, where you work in silence with other professionals around the world for extra accountability.

FLOWN also offers round-the-clock Drop-in sessions, for the 'virtual library effect' as you work. Tapping into the science of 'body doubling', FLOWN particularly helps those with ADHD (or anyone struggling with focus or loneliness as they work from home) feel more productive and accountable.

FLOWN membership also includes various recharge activities like breathwork, meditation, and drawing sessions, which boost creativity and a sense of well-being at work.

Founding Story

FLOWN is founded by serial entrepreneur, Alicia Navarro. She was the founder of affiliate marketing power-house Skimlinks, which most media companies and publishers use to monetize their commerce content.

After Skimlinks got acquired during the pandemic in 2020, she was exploring what she wanted to do next. She read Cal Newport's book "Deep Work" and became inspired by how crazy it is that we *know* what can drive flow states at work, yet we don't structure the way we work according to those principles. She began her mission of transforming how we work so we weave deep work and flow state into the fabric of our working lives. FLOWN is her second startup, and already helping tens of thousands of professionals tackle the forces of distraction and loneliness in our post-pandemic world.

Alicia is Aussie-born, of Cuban and Spanish parents, based mostly in London and Lisbon.
