Bali is becoming one of the best places to build a startup, but most of the early-stage entrepreneurs we speak to aren't aware of the local tech resources that are available to help them.

With applications for the Bali Founder Institute now open, we're excited to release the Bali Startup Resource Guide, which is currently in Draft v1 below! It was developed by the Bali Founder Institute and local leaders: Julia Milaeva (Co-Founder & Local Leader, Founder Institute Bali ), Samuel Ayvazyan (Founder, FI Bali), Shushana Davtyan (Marketing Specialist, Founder Institute Bali), Titasya Anugraheni (Co-Founder & Local Leader, Founder Institute Bali)

This is just a draft, and while we spent many hours on this research, more input is needed. Please leave your comments on this collaborative Google document to help us complete the list. There are definitely omissions on this current version.

Startup Stages

There is no one right way to build a technology company, but for the sake of simplicity we have outlined a basic, common, sequential framework.

1. Idea Stage

This is where new entrepreneurs get inspired, learn best practices, develop skills, validate ideas, and begin to build their team and product.

A. Inspire

B. Educate

C. Validate

2. Launch Stage

In this stage, entrepreneurs establish and formalize the company, develop the product, get feedback from customers, and prepare for the next step.

A. Start

B. Develop

C. Launch

3. Growth Stage

Here, a startup proves their utility, receives recognition, and scales up. This usually requires funding, angels, VCs, and ways to connect them to startups.

B. Funding

C. Growth

4. Bali Startup Success Stories

Successful homegrown companies that have raised significant institutional funding, employ a large workforce, or have achieved liquidity.
