Escape the City Tech MBA
Next intake: Jan 18th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to enrol.
Need some tech help, but can’t find a developer?
This 2-day intensive has been designed for escaping entrepreneurs who aren’t exactly sure what they want to do (but know it will involve tech) and for existing non-technical entrepreneurs who want to get their fingers in the code to be able to better understand and help their team.
Learning the basics of coding could save you a fortune of tech agency bills in the early days and is a perfect compliment to the Startup MBA, which gives you the tools and mindset of modern tech startups.
- Create and style simple webpages for your company or products
- Collect and store user information like emails using forms and a database
- Communicate with a tech team
- Make more informed technical hiring and management decisions
- Host your website at your own domain name and server
- Remove the bottleneck of having to find a programmer every time you want to improve the website for your customers
What this course will NOT do
- You will not be a fluent programmer (although you’ll have a starting point)
- You will not understand server programming (but you’ll be able to make a website say what you want)
- You will not be able to create new wordpress themes (though with some trial and error you’ll be able to understand and tweak them)
- You will not have an easy answer of where to find a technical cofounder (but you will know a little bit more about their world and work)
