Technological talents for a new world!

This is an initiative to face the crisis that we are living in front of the COVID 19 scenario. We want to generate opportunities to promote the employability of young people in our city. Through programming, at Academia Geek we instill in young people proactive attitudes towards knowledge, training them in social skills to work as a team and training them in specific skills to enter the technology industry.

Make your donation and help us turn young people into people capable of developing a better future for all.

We provide programming training to young people with an emphasis on three lines, in addition to other skills, entrepreneurship methodologies and employment support.

Who we are?

We are an alliance between MAKAIA, Agile Innova and E-volution: three organizations that work with technology, innovation and digital solutions and have decided to share their knowledge and promote the training of IT talent.

What do we offer?

We empower your talent so that in 9 weeks, you can acquire and practice junior web application development skills thus preparing you to start your journey in technological entrepreneurship or work with one of our allies.

Our bootcamps are intensive: Dedication of 5 hours a day, 5 days a week to learn in sessions accompanied by a tutor. Additionally, you need a few hours to work on your own on the challenges that will help you strengthen your knowledge.

During the measures adopted by COVID-19, our classes are virtual, however, our time intensity is the same with the accompaniment of our tutors.

What will you learn?

In addition to programming, you will strengthen other competences and work with agile methodologies of software development and ICT entrepreneurship. We will also support you in the search for employment and relationship with companies.
