Sart Me Up in Bali!

My internship with Start Me Up was incredible! I worked with a really awesome local organization building them a new website and met SO MANY people while I was there. The networking opportunities were great and so were the workshops and dojo (nearly every night). Obviously, a huge bonus to this program is that you're in Bali! We got to work hard during the day on our internships and then spend our nights and weekends exploring the island and even other parts of Southeast Asia. This truly was one of a kind experience that you won't regret! The people and staff were amazing and you get work experience while you travel! My group was awesome and the accommodation was perfect, we were right on the main road in Canggu so we were walking distance to Dojo, the beach, and basically everywhere. It's also cool because the people in your cohort are from all over the world so you make friends that you can stay with when you travel. The food was the best food I've eaten in my life and I honestly would go back just for that! This opportunity with Start Me Up has really opened my eyes to the possibilites of working remotely and I am so happy I found it before I graduated.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Make the most of the networking opportunities! I was based at Dojo and met some amazing people that are super willing to help if you ask questions. Go to the workshop events and make sure you explore Bali on the weekends and you will not be disappointed.

Two month internship in Bali

The internship was great. I was working with a startup accelerator and part time on my own startup TX.
I was able to get involved in lots of high impact projects from creating marketing strategies, building websites, doing competitor analysis and research to creating a promotional video. I was also able to get tons of mentoring from industry professionals and could improve my skills in any way I wanted.
Outside work I got up to a huge variety of activities from volcano trekking and mountain biking to surfing and diving, and lots more!
Overall an awesome experience and one which has primed me for future challenges.

What would you improve about this program?
-perhaps more structure in the learning side of the internship. It was mostly self led which was good but it would be nice to have done guidance
