Startup Spotlight: Interview with Alexis Wagner, Cofounder of BookandLink

Please, introduce yourself. When did you move to Bali, where do you live, etc…? My name is Alexis Wagner, co-founder of the Bali startup BookandLink: booking engine, channel manager and payment gateway. I am from Paris, France. I did my studies in visual communication and multimedia. At that time, the internet was just booming, freshly out from university with our degrees, we had many opportunities to choose between companies which wanted to hire us. I worked for an American startup company based in Paris. After a year, I decided to work freelance and I worked for Accor Hotel Web for at least a year before I decided to move to Asia 13 years ago. Today I live in Canggu-Berawa (Bali). It’s a great place to be. Still not as developed as the Seminyak area which makes us enjoy the lay dow...

Digital Nomad in Bali

As the title suggests, this post is about being a digital nomad in Bali, and will become an expanding post on that subject. *** I was this close (imagine me gesturing a tiny space using my thumb and index finger) from working for “Google”. Why the quote marks? That’s me referring to the difference between being a Google’s employee and working as a part of independent contractor that work directly under Google’s supervision. Putting aside the difference, that’s the closest thing I–a non tech guy with only average command of design and sub-zero coding skills–from working with the search engine giant. This is a technicality that I was always eager to overlook every time I repeated the story to my friends. Most of them are even more non-techie th...

Why Startuping in Bali?

In recent years, Bali has gained some notoriety as being a perfect startup environment. Its comparatively lower living cost makes it ideal to bootstrap your startup and makes it lean. Talents are abundant. You can connect to coders, growth hackers, designers, copywriters or virtually anyone who can help you roll your startup just by being  a regular at any Facebook community group. The good folks at Bargainfox created a head-to-head comparison infographic between London and Bali. As far as startuping is concerned that may validate why the digital nomad choose Bali as their base.
