Wonder what it takes to build & scale a mission-driven edtech startup?

Quincy Larson, the founder of freeCodeCamp, joins us at the Transcend Network for an Open Discussion this coming Wednesday, July 13. The session will be faciliated by Alberto Arenaza and is open to all!

freeCodeCamp is a startup that allows students from around the world to upskill in core CS specializations for absolutely free!

This session is for you if you want to learn more about how as a founder you can:

  • Solve a pain point effectively enough for a significant number of users

  • Leverage technology to impact masses at scale

  • Build a team that is incentivized to perform not for monetary rewards, but for a drive to contribute towards a mission.

freeCodeCamp has grown at a yearly rate of 60% since the time it was founded in 2014, and today has more than 200K official alumni on LinkedIn!

What's interesting is that Quincy began his career in education as a school teacher! Even though he pursed a liberal arts degree as an undergraduate in college, he learned how to code and went on to become a software engineer himself.

Join us this Wednesday as we host Quincy at the Transcend Network where he will be taking us through his insights & learnings in building an edtech startup from scratch. He will also be answering any questions you may have on his journey as a founder building in education.

Fill in your details above, and we will see you in the session :)
