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, has launched a training opportunity for three Black entrepreneurs, who will be equipped with the power of low code to make their tech dreams a reality. However, the deadline for submitting applications has expired.

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.

With the massive growth in low-code technology, we now have a significant opportunity for increasing diversity within the tech industry.

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.
