Buenos Aires, Argentina

Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina. It is a top tourist destination and it is known for its European-style architecture. The city is a multicultural melting pot, so several languages are spoken in addition to Spanish.

 Buenos Aires has a BOOMING startup ecosystem. Highly educated and skilled workers comprise a strong labor force at a fraction of the cost that most developed countries face. In fact, many of South America's most innovative companies are based in Buenos Aires. And with a new governmental initiative, startup accelerators and incubators receive the support they need to build successful companies. Not to mention, Fellows get to take a break from interning at their startups to travel to the incredible landscapes and mountain ranges of Argentina and beyond. All of this paired with a low cost of living, rich culture (heavily influenced by Italian and Spanish immigrants), delicious food/wine, and a vibrant nightlife makes Buenos Aires is a particularly attractive destination for Sage Corps Fellows.
