Introducing Batch 4 of Apps Without Code Bootcamp

Apps Without Code Bootcamp Batch 4

It’s been a busy fall for Apps Without Code.

Right now I’m really excited about Batch 4 of Apps Without Code Bootcamp, which just started (if you’re not familiar with the Bootcamp, it’s a 12-week “Startup School” we run for non-technical founders — you can learn more over here)

A big reason why I’m so excited?

Here’s one:

The companies in the Bootcamp are not your traditional Silicon Valley tech startups.

Most of the Bootcampers have expertise in a non-sexy industry where they see huge opportunities for tech. For example, Patrick Anderson (CEO of OpExApps) is an alumni of the program. He built a process tracking app for manufacturing assembly lines & has already licensed his app to Coca-Cola. Alivia Blount (CEO of PreUni) is building apps for competitive preschools & the parents applying to them.

I get kind of bored with the regular Silicon Valley app that’s cute, but has no revenue-generating business model. So, I’m super excited about this new batch of entrepreneurs who are creating generational wealth by solving real problems in lucrative industries. I think that’s what makes the Apps Without Code program really different.
