Need technical skills to run a tech startup? Not necessarily...

Posted in:


The journey to becoming a technical founder is not as clear-cut as other career paths. 

Some careers have clear cut journeys. Doctors and nurses can expect university degrees, post-university education, residencies, clinics and more. Lawyers need to pass exams after post-university education. 

What about being a founder in the tech sector in 2020?

Sure, you can go and get yourself a business degree.  But that involves a huge financial and time commitment. 

Not to mention, if you’re in the tech sector, from the time you walk into your first day of lectures at university, technology will have changed ten times over by the time you walk across the stage for graduation.

With the rapid growth of the technology sector, finding an effective and efficient journey to gain entrepreneurship knowledge with some technical understanding to boost your startup to scale. 

The answer is simple. Join a founder’s bootcamp to streamline your new career in startup business. 

A lot of bootcamps focus on the technical training you need to become a fullstack developer, such as learning CSS, HTML, or Java. However, 4.3% of people attending bootcamps join to learn skills to start their own business. 

Here at Million Labs, our Founders No-Code Bootcamp provides non-technical co-founders all the tools they need to succeed in the world of tech startups: including technical and business skills.  We do this with the game-changing technology that is no-code. 

Here are five reasons to join our bootcamp, even if you’re not a technical founder.

1. Learn from others

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel with your startup. You can learn from dozens of other people who have walked your very path. Maybe they walked the path in different shoes, but they still know where the potholes are. 

2. Networking

Our Startup Founders Bootcamp offers you access to a Slack community of founders. Not only will you get to know your fellow cohorts, but you will also gain access to those who came before you. This isn’t just a learning experience, but networking, selling, partnering, and referring with your fellow founders. Imagine being in a cohort with the next founder of something like Airbnb! 

3. Learn to Code (or No-Code)

You want to be a founder of a technical startup, and you don’t know how to write a single line of coding? Simple solution: learn no-code. In our 16 week business bootcamp, we teach non-technical founders how to build mobile applications without writing a single line of code. We teach our founders-in-training Bubble, and after three six-hour days, they will have the skill set to build a market-ready MVP.

4. Get to market quicker

We believe you can do anything you set your mind to, but what if you can do it faster with some help?  You can spend weeks and months validating your business idea, refining your value proposition, and pre-testing your MVP, but with the support of experienced founders you can fly through these fundamental steps. With our bootcamp, you can get to market with an mvp you built and live customers in just 16 weeks. 

5. Get investment-ready

There is nothing quite like hearing experienced founders say, “you’re ready to present to investors.” From pitch decks to meeting investors, bootcamps offer you an environment to prepare for some of the most nerve-wracking meetings any founder will walk into. 

Regardless of where you are in your career, your startup journey, or your technical skills, Million Labs No-Code Founders Bootcamp might be just what you’re looking for.

You can opt to join the lessons that fit your business needs and budget, or join all 16 lessons to be fully prepared for your founder’s journey. During our lessons, you’ll validate your business idea, refine your value proposition, pre-test your MVP, learn how to write no-code to build your own MVP, and prepare for investors.

There’s never been a better time to start your startup journey than today.
