Desiring to make a transformative social impact in Latin America, Laboratoria provides training in Web Development or UX Design for women to improve their quality of life and pursue a gender balance in the IT industry.

How it works

During a 6-month bootcamp held from Monday to Friday (five hours per day), Laboratoria trains women for free-ish (actually, deferred) from zero, while strengthening their soft skills, fundamental for successful job insertion.

Once the bootcamp is concluded, the women will have the opportunity to work in companies of the local technology industry, where the graduated women will be able to apply for a job as UX Designer, Frontend Developer or Protypers.

The -ish in Free-ish

The course is actually not free; in the end it must be paid. But it is only once they have gotten jobs in IT companies such as Dresden Partners, the alumnae start to pay for the training received by Laboratoria, and thus contribute to the cause.

Success cases

Laboratoria affirms to have 82% of success in labor placement, where allegedly the women can multiply their income up to threefold.

In addition, this cause boasts the approval from former US President, Barack Obama, who recognised Laboratoria's efforts during Global Entrepreneurship 2016.

Laboratoria Community

Once the bootcamp is concluded, Laboratoria offers access to the Laboratoria's Graduate Community made up of more than 1400 Latin American women, continuing to train them through courses, workshops, conferences, etc.
