LaunchLab in partnership with the University of Botswana has launched a Coding School. Our goal is to equip university students with industry-ready coding skills and an opportunity to work with startups or industry partners.

 

Coding School Participants:

We are looking for final year students or recent graduates with problem-solving mindsets and ambition to change the world with code.

 

Industry Partners and Startups:

We are looking for startups or industry partners who would like to host our world-class student developers as interns.

 

The Details:

 

  • Criteria

Final year students or graduates who understand the fundamentals of object-oriented programming. These candidates need to complete our online application form and pass our coding challenge.

 

  • Entries    

You should hear from us within 72 hours after submitting the coding challenge. If you do not, please email info@launchlab.co.za.

 

  • Selection

Successful applicants will be invited for an interview for final selection. Then there will be a 6-week Bootcamp by Zaio, a startup with coding expertise. The Bootcamp is broken down into 2 phases where Phase 1 is the basic phase and Phase 2 is the advanced phase. After the Bootcamp, successful participants will be placed with a startup or industry partner for a 3-month internship. They will have an opportunity to work on solving real-world problems and/or projects.
