Low Code Accelerator Program

Own your destiny with low code.

Running your own business is a great way to take control of your future. Entrepreneurship carves out a path toward financial freedom, but do you feel limited because you don’t have the coding skills needed to bring your tech business idea to life? That can change by learning low code.

Claris, an Apple company, is launching a training opportunity alongside our first partner in this initiative, EonXI. The Low Code Accelerator program equips three selected Black entrepreneurs with the power of low code to make their tech business dreams a reality.

A fresh approach
for a new beginning.

Don’t have a computer science degree? No problem! Low code enables you to create powerful, custom business solutions that bring real value to organizations, and you don’t have to know how to write long lines of traditional coding. Learn how to build low-code applications in a few months, not years – no college degree required.

What’s possible with low code?

You can create countless low-code solutions for future clients! Low code empowers you to do it all — from developing custom apps that set up inventory systems to automating manual processes and managing data.

The Claris low-code development platform allows you to build and sell high-powered business apps more easily, and we’re here to show you how. The Low Code Accelerator program provides you with the technical training, business expertise, mentorship, and funding needed to launch your big idea – that’s everything you need to get your tech business off the ground!

Learn about low code
With the massive growth in low-code technology, we now have a significant opportunity for increasing diversity within the tech industry. The Low Code Accelerator program represents a deep commitment in helping reduce the diversity gap, and we’re excited to give the selected entrepreneurs what’s needed for tech business success.

Building a business has challenges. That’s why we’re here to help, along with our team of experts who currently make a living by building low-code applications using Claris FileMaker. This program puts you on the fast track toward accomplishing your business goals. You’ll receive:

  • Coaching and mentoring from our program partners, including Cris Ippolite, a 25-year Claris developer and president of iSolutions.
  • Extensive business guidance from Cathy House, adjunct professor at Howard University’s School of Business. With over 15 years of experience helping entrepreneurs bring business ideas to life, Cathy’s expertise will help solidify your success.

Every day, I work with brilliant Black entrepreneurs who have industry-changing ideas, but no technical training to bring those ideas to life through software. While we must invest in closing the educational gaps that led us to this point, I see tremendous opportunity in low-code software development to empower these entrepreneurs today. I’m proud to be part of this program.

Narrowing the racial wealth gap starts with access to technology and resources. This is why we’re building communities of diverse developers and diverse entrepreneurs.
