Pao Global Internship 2020
(updated for COVID)

About:

Pao (say “pow”) is a three-person startup based in Boulder, Colorado. The Pao Team has spent the past two years developing an app that essentially helps you figure out what to do today. Nowadays, we believe it is getting way too easy to experience things in the comfort of your home (YouTube, Tinder, Instagram, UberEats, etc.). Here at Pao, our vision is to inspire people to get up and go experience the real world. No more information overload, impersonal reviews, or passive scrolling through social media. Pao shows you the coolest spots, then helps you get up and go experience them.
