Frequently asked questions

And whatever else your heart desires!

What is Co.Lab?

Co.Lab is a six week practical education program. Participants are put into groups consisting of a Product Manager, Developer, and Designer, with the aim of launching a real product through team work.

What is You Belong in Tech?

This article should have all the information you need! 

Who is Co.Lab for?

Co.Lab is a six-week part-time practical education program, with a focus on teamwork and collaboration. It is for current, or aspiring Product Managers, Developers or Designers looking to get practical product experience. Applicants are accepted globally, and time zones are considered as part of the matching process.

Is this program worth it? 

Only you have the answer to that.

What is gaining confidence, connections, and actual product experience worth for you? How much will that go towards landing your next job or next promotion? How can that help you grow you as a person? 

All we can say is that we will provide the best experience possible for you in reaching your goals - whether that's gaining the confidence, landing your next job, snagging that big promo, and anything in between.

How is Co.Lab different than a bootcamp or a course?

Recruiters and managers are looking for evidence of practical experience, the ability to ship products, and collaborate across disciplines. In a bootcamp, you do some boilerplate projects or case studies, working with other folks in the same role as yourself. In a course, you might never even finish it.

Co.Lab gives you a more accessible opportunity to work as a real product team doing agile development. Get real users, ship real products. Gain (and show) the confidence that you'll do great in a real work environment.
