Project Getaway Bali 2010
The first PG event in 2010 was an experiment – the testing of a personal and big dream.
Michael Bodekær, the creator of Project Getaway, wanted to see what could happen if 20 like-minded and ambitious entrepreneurs lived together for 30 days in Paradise. He removed all daily chores and made sure that all they should worry about was having fun and creating amazing stuff.
The event turned out to be more than amazing; There was a fake wedding, a lawyer proved, that lawyers also can work remotely, great mobile apps were born and there was even time for river rafting, paragliding, kite-surfing, wave-surfing, a Gili Island trip and a mountain climbing!
6 people ended up staying in the Gili Islands after the event, the luxury villa rental company Vilondo was launched and new and life-long friendships and business partnerships were born!
After the event was over it was clear, that is was not going to be the last Project Getaway event!
