American/Moroccan looking to move to Bali to start a business

Hi, I am looking to start a business in Bali or do a partnership and I was wondering how that works... I have begin saving money and I expect to have at least 10k by the summer... I need advice, help and how I can find a job there too.

Hi! I just saw your post. I'm from the Netherlands and I also want to move to Bali to start my own business. I was wondering if you already found some information? Or made already some progress. Would be nice to discuss!

I hate to be one to spoil dreams, but hopefully you appreciate realistic advice.

Starting a new business is very expensive, and 10 thousand isn't even a realistic start. 

As for jobs, the news isn't any better.  It is very hard to become legally employed in Indonesia.  You will need a skill which is not easily found within the pool of available locals looking for employment.  Jobs here are for Indonesians first.

Again, sorry for this news, but I don't want to mislead you and give you false hope.

I can only confirm that you will have to really think hard about what to do with your
hard earned money. Most of the things you might be considering are being done already on Bali,
so you need a unique/innovative idea to have any chance with bigger competitors.

10k is not realistic to start a business here if you are planning on doing it alone and on your name.
Check out the livinginindonesia forum, there is a huge pile of info for you.
I cannot imagine that you have read through that site yet.
Or you

Also consider that life on Bali is not as cheap as one might think,
once you have moved here you might find that you have to spend a bigger percentage
of your budget on living, housing, food and transportation. At least until you have found your
ways around here. It helps to have a local good friend or expat who can show you how
around to avoid unnecessary spending of your business budget.  ;)

Please be careful and don't rush the thing. It is best to work with people you really can trust,
and to find these people requires time.

What kind of business are you considering?
That would help so you can get better advise here.


anyway all the best wishes
