Costa Ricans have always been innovators and problem solvers. As early as the 1940s, the country had an established healthcare system, and it has vowed to be the first carbon-neutral nation in the world by 2021. Fellows who choose San Jose as their program city will immerse themselves in the entrepreneurial mindset that Costa Rica is known for. 

As a gateway between North and South America, San Jose is home to an emerging startup community that works to fund and support entrepreneurial ventures across a variety of industries. The city has a high quality of life, with access to many basic social services and resources, providing its startup players with the foundation they need to scale their businesses. The tropical climate and beach access also helps entrepreneurs escape the daily rigors that startup life often demands.
