Laboratoria Opens New Training Center in Guadalajara, Mexico

Peruvian startup Laboratoria has launched a new training center in Guadalajara, Mexico to develop female talent in tech.

The company is focused on giving women the skills for front-end development and UX through a six-month bootcamp. The project is hosted at Centro de Software with IJALTI helping to run it.

The course looks to give those with minimal resources a chance to get into the industry. Applicants must meet certain criteria, such as being a single mom, or already having low income. After the course, they are guaranteed a job and the project leaders continue to work with them for two years to continue developing skills.

“In Latin America there are millions of women with the potential of becoming the digital leaders of tomorrow,” said Mariana Costa Checa, co-founder and CEO (pictured).
