Case Studies

Tomi Ogundayo spent one month in Bali interning for a Singapore-run blockchain startup. After her internship, she was invited to represent her startup at the UN World Investment Forum on Blockchain for Sustainability/Social Impact in Geneva.

This experience is great for young people. Most of us are trapped in the idea that you have to get a 9 to 5, complete a checklist of things, get a pension and then die. But being here no matter what age, there will be something for you.”

Harvard University

Isabella Ippolito spent two months on Start Me Up’s Startup Internship Program in Bali working on projects for Penguin Random House and on a viral campaign that was featured by the BBC.
After the program she was hired by the company she’d been interning with and was flown to the Kennedy Space Station in Florida to help with an art installation celebrating 50 years since the first man on the moon.

I’m proud that I achieved exactly what I set out to do.  I made the best of my time while I was in Bali, won new freelance clients developed a close relationship with my mentor.”

Health and Safety

As an overseas program provider, we take our responsibilities very seriously. We have a sizeable local and international team in the countries where we operate and we undertake regular risk assessments.

All of our team are trained in health and safety procedures and we have detailed checklists in place to ensure that team members know how to act to
promote the highest standards in health and safety.

This includes procedures about what to do in the event that students experience anything from physical illnesses, injuries and mental health issues, to natural disasters.

All participants receive on-boarding, orientation and training before the program starts. This covers information about what to do in the event of an emergency, evacuation points and emergency contacts. Full details of what we offer in terms of on-boarding are available on request.

The largest economy in Southeast Asia, Indonesia is the world’s third biggest democracy and has a population of 264 million people.
