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!

What our students think of us

An intense developer bootcamp showing best practices to get you up to speed as an online entrepeneur, fast, practical and to the point!
9 weeks of intense coding.Great curriculum, enthusiastic coaches. The MBA of code.
Intense experience full of love and tears. Will do it again.
A life changing bootcamp that opens new doors for you, socially and technically speaking. The Le Wagon family is one of a kind!
I was exhausted at the end of the bootcamp with my body still now recovering, but I loved every minute of it.
What an experience! Those were two months of extreme learning. Besides learning how to build web applications I built amazing friendships.
Intense but so awesome!
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.
What a ride - incredible experience being sucked into the tech-world with no way to quit or slack off...enjoyed every second - THANKS!
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.
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.
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.

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.
