Technopreneur Ann Jacobe, together with her team, introduced Appstart Academy to the public last July 22 at Makati Shangri-la Hotel. The academy’s mission-vision is to help the country be in the forefront of the app economy.

During the media launch, Ann discussed the story behind the success of their first mobile application, Shoephoric, which also led to the establishment of the Appstart Academy. Their goal is to bridge the gap between the Philippines and the international app economy, as well as the gap between an individual and his perception of a fulfilling career.

Appstart academy offers various courses and workshops. Their introductory course (which is FREE for everyone) Winning in the App Economy is a workshop will guide you on how to develop app ideas and scope them. They will show you the process of app formation from scheming, arrange in Swift, trial, compliance and selling in the App Store.

Next on the list is: iOS Development Immersive. This extensive program will teach diverse Apple tools and structures that are necessary in constructing your apps for the AppStore.

For beginners, you can enroll in the iOStarter Pack. Here participants will learn the ropes in coding apps, the good thing is they offer it even if you don’t have programming experience. There’s also a cource in Advance Swift to enhance further your swift skills while creating revenue generating app. For designers, there’s a dedicated  course on iOS for Designers. Lastly, Appstart Academy has Specialized iOS Bootcamps wherein participants will learn advanced knowledge on geo-location, AF Networking and many more.

“It‘s not the lack of talent that hinders us from being totally great. What stops us from excelling is the lack of mentorship and training. Yes, the passion is there, the knowledge, but both won‘t really make much of an impact without the proper haven to house today‘s innovators,” Ann said.
