From Bali to Barcelona, learn startup skills on the other side of the world.

Do you like the idea of working for a startup? Or do you dream of launching your own startup?

Maybe you like the idea of getting a taste of startup life without having to commit to a permanent job?

Well have you thought about getting all these experiences, but in another country?

Start Me Up runs structured programs in emerging startup hubs favored by remote startup founders.

We offer two programs, a Startup Internship Program where we match students with startup internships across three continents and a Startup Accelerator Bootcamp, which helps students fast-track their startup ideas in Bali.

“I think the word ‘incredible’ would be an understatement. I applied for a marketing role and what I got was so much more than that. In my first week, I learned about coding, web design and copywriting. I probably got more out of being here for a week than I would have working one year for a corporation.”
