"After graduating from a top business school in Canada, I decided to move out to San Francisco to work in investment banking. Being in Silicon Valley is truly a unique experience, with some of the sharpest minds working on the next big thing. I wanted to be able to test out my ideas, but didn't have the basic technical skills to do so. I tried working through textbooks and free online tools that are available, but found it to be extremely frustrating. After moving back to Toronto, I came upon Bitmaker Labs and was extremely excited to be a part of the program. The rigorous 9 week program provides the tools, network and experience to really position one to build out ideas and potentially join great startups in the Toronto area. The curriculum being used is leveraged from some of the top programs from around the world, and the instructors are sourced from some of the best local talents. I look forward to completing the Bitmaker program and being a part of the entrepreneurial culture in Toronto."
