Fábrica de Startups Scholarship

10 Portuguese * January to March * €2450 scholarship

Fábrica de Startups is offering each scholarship recipient a €2450 discount on the total cost of Le Wagon’s tuition (limited to 10 students). Fábrica de Startups believes in making technology more open and available in order to foster creativity and develop the skills that will in turn further build Portugal’s ecosystem.

Scholarships are only offered to applicants that are residents in Portugal. To be eligible, applicants must successfully complete Le Wagon's standard admissions process and be officially accepted. Acceptance into the program is not a guarantee of scholarship funding.

Students who choose to defer enrollment after being awarded a scholarship are not guaranteed the same amount for a future session. To be considered, students must complete the online application. Candidates who are successfully admitted into our program will be considered. We encourage students to make their interest and qualifications known to their admissions contact during the first interview.

A taste of Lisbon.

Code the startup way.

Learn web-development

Learn all about Ruby, SQL, and the Rails application framework. Develop your front-end skills by using advanced CSS technics (flexbox, grid, animations, etc..) and go deeper into Javascript by learning jQuery and React.js, the library developed by Facebook. More details.

Become a Software engineer

Become more than a developer, a Software engineer. A person who has the big picture on technical issues, who knows what is a MVC, a DB scheme, an HTTP request, and who can learn a new programming language within a week.

Adopt a technical workflow

There's definitely a good way of building tech products and that's what we will teach you. Write your MVP's user stories, draw your database scheme, build a mockup with Sketch, collaborate using pull-requests and code-reviews on Github. That's how successful startups work.

Get the startup toolkit

Heroku, Stripe, Mandrill, Amazon S3, Algolia... We will teach you how to implement all these services to be more efficient at the launch of your new product. Save time, use the right tool for your specific need, that's our developer mindset.

Build your product

No one will teach you how to build web products as we do. Kudoz has just raised 1.2M, Impact is disrupting politics, MaShareEcole school, MedPics healthcare, Krawd marketing... and there are so many other projects in the starting blocks. Check it out for yourself.

Land a new job

Working as a junior developer for Stripe, Algolia, Molotov, Save, Compass, 55, Save, etc.. We will help you find your dream job, either as a junior dev, product manager or growth hacker. Discuss with any of our alumni to find out more!

Le Wagon was one of the best experiences of my life. They make the impossible possible. I went from a coding newbie to building my own web application.

The most intense learning experience in my life, sweated blood and tears, and came back from the dead to feel great about all the things I've learnt. Can recommend it to everyone!

Le Wagon is THE coding school you should do. period. It's worth the cost. Go and see by yourself.

The perfect coding foundation. The social aspect was just as good and perhaps even better.
Ae9qo5xeuupirozl4gxl
It was awesome, I wish I had done this earlier in life. I recommend Le Wagon to every good soul!
Knbera60kjshxbowa5ko
Intense and above what I expected. When you read that many good reviews on the internet, you usually find it hard to believe. At the end of Le Wagon, you understand why people love it that much.
Y6je5qe1beko9lqdgrnj
If someone asks me where to go for the best web development training in London it has to be Le Wagon. I feel like I have learned in 9 weeks what would normally take 3 years. Excellent syllabus and platform.
Ckb4hx7i4fbnbj2ym0xu
It was amazing to meet so many different people. And everyday I felt more motivated. Le Wagon really made me change the way I will look at any new challenge coming my way.

This little van actually hides and incredible lift towards the coding skies! Brace yourselves!
Rwuhfrjtec2jlmg9piel
What an experience! Those were two months of extreme learning. Besides learning how to build web applications I built amazing friendships.

Become a family in a week, live like a family for two months and learn like you've never learned before. Let Le Wagon change your life.

It's a whistle stop tour into the world of full stack programming that if you snooze, you lose, there's no going backwards only forwards into the unknown to give birth to new amazing products with your teammates for life.
Rn7yywrki2kjvmildvbz
It was like learning ruby at the pace of an airplane! We covered so much stuff in only 9 weeks.
Kkplbdsv7lobm0dv7dmj
Intense but so awesome!
Cwk9vv0y3m1kb41xh5mr
It was one of the most exciting and challenging time of my life. I felt that I should have learnt all of that 15 years ago, but this power of internet did not exist by then. So Lewagon was the right thing to do in this very right time.
Nenp9ojnukcttvaxdjny
Challenging, intense, fun, Le Wagon took us from clueless to junior devs in just a few weeks!

Best ride of my life. Super intense, but I have learned so much, met amazing people. Not sure if I will ever get an experience with such an amazing learning curve.
O2slm8hn1p0jme5gvxd7
I loved it, I was challenged, frustrated, euphoric and down on my rear end some days. I would recommend Le Wagon to anyone with aspirations to code. Just be prepared for an emotional journey.
Wpjxzilxbgr5gv8hh6yu
By far the best learning experience I ever had.
P5jbjvll7ldvisaalmfd
Intense experience full of love and tears. Will do it again.
Xpdkwliu0oybkmv8rutd
The most rewarding feeling when you reach Demo Day with your shiny new MVP. The teaching staff are extremely talented at passing on their knowledge, their passion and enthusiasm for coding is infectious, and this course was without doubt the right move to progress our startup.
Lmbyl4dy7fkusd42lgnh
Online courses made me feel like I could learn to code. Le Wagon made me code.

What a ride - incredible experience being sucked into the tech-world with no way to quit or slack off...enjoyed every second - THANKS!

Shannon Graybill

This cowgirl turned wannabe-European spent the first 5 years after university working and traveling through Asia and Africa before discovering her love of Southern Europe – Portugal in particular. Shannon’s professional focus was mainly marketing and business development, but entering Lisbon’s startup scene has changed her tune. She is now warming up her tech muscles while pursuing her own startup dreams and mobilizing Portugal's inspired-entrepreneurs to bootstrap and build “it” themselves.

Cyrille Labesse

When Cyrille realised it was time to drop out of his 5-year "engineering school" in Lyon, France, it was to join the startup scene and learn how to code properly by hands-on work. After France, he moved to Vancouver then later on to Berlin sharpening his back-end development skills. In 2015, he decided to devote his time to teaching and specifically to dev-bootcamps as they reflect exactly his idea of education for a fast-paced, high-tech and innovative world.
