Description


Le Wagon Lisbon is inviting you to a free coding day on Thursday 7th December 2017 to give you a taste of what it's like to build your own tech products from scratch.

If you’re interested, please RSVP and we’ll be in touch with more info.

Le Wagon is Europe's leading coding school for entrepreneurs and creative people. Described by TechCrunch as "quietly becoming a major coding bootcamp in Europe". Having launched just 3 years ago with just €1,000 and raised no funding to date, they’re present in 20 cities worldwide, with over 50 startups in operation, a handful have raised over €1M and others are raising up to €250,000. This will explain why the highest ranking on course report.

Having recently partnered with HEC in Paris, Le Wagon is the first entrepreneurs coding bootcamp to be offered by a business school as part of their masters curriculum.

Take a look at the products built by our previous Lisbon batches in August 2016, March 2017 and June 2017.
