When you enter Dojo, you enter a space alive with an eclectic group of digital nomads, expats, and location-independent professionals from all corners of the globe with one common goal: to get shit done.
The space in itself is like no other. Where else can you take a dip in a pool which feels like you are surrounded by a tropical haven before stepping into an air-conditioned meeting room? Throughout, you will find an array of space offering unique character and ambiance to both work and socialize with your co-workers.
“Amazing staff and amazing co-workers set the foundation for this incredible community. This is Bali-not the West. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Upon arrival, you can expect to receive a warm welcome along with a tour from a member of staff. First up, you’ll notice the cafe serving delicious food—local and international—coffee, snacks, juices, and smoothies. Besides the obvious (people, Mac’s, and a few PC’s fighting for their place on this planet), you’ll notice unique art, character, and decor throughout—creating an atmosphere in which creativity thrives.
Whether you’re a freelancer, remote worker, solopreneur, seasoned entrepreneur, or just starting out—Dojo can cater to all your needs.
The next question you’ll want to ask yourself is what you prefer?
Inside or out? Silence or chaos? Bean-bags or couches? Upright or vertical? Pool or beach? Coffee or Kombucha? Smoothies or coconuts? Local or international cuisine? Girls or boys? Surf or Yoga? Sunset beers or cocktails?
What else can I expect?
Barbecues. Toastmasters. Karaoke. Masterminds. Parties. Skill-sharing. Movie nights. Think-tanks. And so much more. The owner, Michael, doesn’t hold back and will go above and beyond to accommodate all. Every month, he throws an epic BBQ for all members, after which he’ll pull out the smoke machine, and laser lights to bring a little Ibiza to Dojo.
“We work hard. We play hard.”
All the above fall under one broad term which is the ethos for what Dojo stands for, it’s all about community. Ultimately, you get a supportive environment full of inspiration, where belief trumps doubt and solutions trump problems.
Most professionals are used to a singular vision and culture dictated by the CEO. The big tech companies born out of Silicon Valley entice their employees to work longer hours with lavish cafeterias, massage, foosball, and pool tables galore. And that’s great, but I don’t think they can compete with what goes on here.
At Dojo, the culture is set by the community. With experts from every facet of business—if you come here hungry and eager to learn—you won’t be disappointed. We live in a world of “experts” where many of us have had dreams squashed by others too scared to pursue theirs. At Dojo, everybody wants you to win, and as long as you’re not a dick, you’ll fit right in.
What’s the big deal with Bali?
I’m no Christian, but there’s a reason it was christened, “The Island of the Gods.” On any given day, you could be surfing world class waves, free-diving, hiking a volcano, immersing yourself in the culture, shooting down waterslides, snorkeling with Manta Rays or Sea Turtles, cliff jumping, exploring rice fields and temples, or simply sipping cocktails and lounging in any number of the Islands beach clubs.
Here, you set your schedule. And here, you can experience what true freedom feels like.
“It sounds like a dream – but only those that dare to dream – live their dream.”
Welcome to Dojo, Canggu, and Bali. And if you want it bad enough, welcome to your new reality.
