Don’t miss Pandorahub: Rural Revival Movement

One thing Pandorahub does is connecting. It connects people with places and let them rewire and re-mold themselves for the better according to the inspiration they get from those places. The initiative  allows startupers (under the name of Pandorahub Fun! Startup) and also career shifters, its target audience, to spend times in rural areas, join its well-crafted activities and interact with fellow attendees. In turn, the whole experience could lead to the process of rediscovering themselves, as a better human or as a newborn startupers or a better content marketer. That’s a really cool concept if you ask me. People have spent so much resources to get just that. More often than not to no avail.  And by that, I mean a mild to fully mind blowing experience that encourage people to alter...

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...

The Future of Startup World

What lies ahead for future startups? This post isn’t about me guessing what the next trend in the startup world will be. Nope. If I knew anything about that, even the slightest, I wouldn’t be sitting here and just write about it…I’d go out there and make it happen. So, this is just me thinking that it’s about time to ask such a question. These past few years we’ve seen how the likes of Uber and AirBnB altered the otherwise low-tech industries into booming tech-based services. Such a “simple” and smart innovation has helped both startups to rise into the cult status as unicorns, namely private companies with a minimum valuation of $1 billion. Such disruption also took the market by storm. It inspired others to do the same in virtually every niche and vert...

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...
