Do you dream of starting your own business? Find out why Bali is one of the best places to become an entrepreneur, and how to get started

Bali has branded itself as the hub for creative and business-oriented people. The startup scene in what is known as ‘paradise on earth’ appeals to entrepreneurs from all around the world. Who wouldn’t want to live on a paradise island with strong and constantly growing infrastructure and networks? On top of that, who could resist the beautiful surroundings, volcanoes, wildlife, good food, five-star resorts, and year-round sunshine?

Bali is a growing ecosystem where startups and digital nomads are all interlinked. Here you’ll find contacts to make your ideas into reality and launch your dreams. It’s the place for anyone wanting to make their own way in life, and lead a life most only dream of.

Besides the growing networking scene, there’s one top reason entrepreneurs choose Bali; cheap living costs. At less than 1000 euros a month you can easily afford to live in a nice villa, travel and eat out every night. With fast internet connection in most areas like Canggu, Ubud, Seminyak and Kuta, you’ll have lots of choice for setting up your office.

Because the startup scene is growing fast, co-working spaces are opening up all around the island to accommodate aspiring entrepreneurs. These shared workspaces are nothing like a regular office. They are more like international hubs of like-minded people where inspiration sparks, ideas get exchanged and business partners can find each other. There you can raise your ideas from babies to grown-ups and get help and support on your entrepreneurial path.

Entrepreneurs and startups form the new backbone of our societies. We need this kind of mindset and universities need to support it.” – Peter Vesterbacka
