There's no question about it— 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.

And with a new governmental initiative, startup accelerators and incubators receive the support they need to build successful companies. 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 an exciting destination for Sage Corps Fellows.

Working with a startup in Buenos Aires taught me so much about the intersection of Latin American culture and business. Being thrown into an environment that both tested my ability to excel in a foreign business atmosphere and provide great work for my start-up was something I couldn’t have gotten anywhere else. Sage Corps is 100% my catalyst on getting the full-time job offer I was seeking. The skills and values one obtains from pushing outside of one’s comfort zone with Sage Corps are invaluable for any path you wish to pursue.”

My responsibilities here are far beyond those I would get at some of the other places I was considering for this summer. Things move so fast here, the work culture is so energetic, and I am getting a look at how the startup community operates in a foreign country. Even in eight weeks, I will have contributed more to Cookapp than I ever would have been able to at a big company.
