Co.Lab Build Bootcamp FAQ

Who is the Co.Lab Build Bootcamp for?

The Co.Lab Build Bootcamp is for early-stage founders or aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners who want to build software products but might not know how or have the right team set up.

You might have an existing hypothesis and idea, but haven't taken it anywhere. Or maybe you've built a no-code tool to test out simple iterations of your product, and now it’s time to take it to the next level and scale to more users. 

How does this actually work?

At Co.Lab, we believe that the best way to empower early-stage founders, entrepreneurs, and business owners is to help them learn, provide accountability, and create a supportive environment for success. We’re not an agency, we’re a school. We don’t do it for you. We do it with you, so that you can do it on your own in the future.

Over the course of 8 weeks, you will receive training and resources to guide you through the product development lifecycle to enable you to deliver an actual product to your users.

The bootcamp is a mix of live, pre-scheduled sessions, as well as online content you can work on on your own or together with your team.

There will be weekly submissions that will require you to collaborate with your designer and developers. Your progress will be monitored by a Product Mentor who shall sync with you regularly on a 1:1 basis. If your team is fully on track, you will complete the program with an online product pack and a working MVP.

How much time does it take to build out my MVP?

The bootcamp requires 10-15 hours of async and collaborative work weekly. This number can change depending on the complexity of the product you'll be building with your team.

95% of projects we build ship on time and within scope. We design our processes to ensure we are all aligned on the project requirements so that we are able to do everything in our capacity to deliver a project you'd be proud to put in front of your customers.

Can you tell me more about matching with developers and designers?

One of the hardest parts of building out a software product is getting the right team together. Luckily at Co.Lab, that's something we solve for you! 

After enrollment, you'll be asked to complete a team match survey detailing your MVP ideal, anticipated tech needs, current skill level, time availabilities, personality, fields of interests, and commitment among others.

You will generally end up in a fully remote team of 1 mentor, 1 product manager, 1 product designer, and 2-4 software developers. All of your team members are vetted junior technologists, keen to learn and be part of the journey with you in building out your MVP.
