Joining startup programmes

There are many reasons that people join startup programmes and like schools, Y Combinator or any institution, some are better than others.

I joined OnDeck because of the No Code cohort, to be around other builders so that I can learn more about out how best to help non-technical professionals. I’m gonna spend my time building a side project in Bubble - a Job Management board for bootstrapped founders that want to find African talent to work on projects.

Should you do one? It depends on what you’re looking to achieve. Reply to this email if you’re thinking about joining a programme and want to know what I think about it.
