Why Innovation Labs?
At Code Untapped we want to do more than up-skill individuals. We want to instil in them an entrepreneurial spirit and provide them with startup spinout opportunities. We also help them acquire jobs with our partners.
The best entrepreneurial technologists
Our Innovation Lab days cover a wide range of skills important to product and start-up development so that we can produce the best entrepreneurial technologists.
Our events provide a series of workshops covering team formation, project ideation and planning. Followed by a choice of workshops covering user experience design, pitch deck writing, presenting and full-stack web & mobile development
We deploy real products
Our partners provide a real-world problem, we provide our amazing coaches and together we then spend half a day actually building and deploying a real product. Teams with innovative solutions get the opportunity to spin out as a funded start-up.
Ultimately we tailor the event to you guys regardless of your level or technical background!
We coach and train underrepresented developers in the art of rapidly prototyping and releasing working software as well as focus on the mental resilience, strength and adaptability needed to succeed in a world of fast moving startups and demanding corporates.
