We're Not a Startup: We're a Lifestyle Business (and We Love It)

Captain's log, stardate d360.y37/AB

In the wake of everyone's frenzy of creating businesses and raising funds, we're often confronted with questions like "can I invest in MarsBased?", "if you want to expand to other countries, why don't you raise money to do it faster?", "there's so much revenue you can make with a team of ten, so why don't you hire more salespeople and a bigger team to sell more?".

How to Make the Most of a Development Bootcamp

Captain's log, stardate d198.y37/AB

MarsBased just turned three years old! Coincidentally, we started our company at the same time as our buddies of IronHack, the leading development bootcamp in Barcelona, Madrid and Miami.

Along these three years, we have been collaborating in a lot of fronts: we teach and mentor there, we give keynotes, we've co-organised events, we've created joint content, they're coming in bulk to our Startup Grind events and we even hired people that completed their development bootcamp. In fact, last week, we became official partners in order to do more and better things together for the development community in Barcelona.

Since we have been collaborating with Ironhack for such a long time, and with some other bootcamps too, we can give you some tips to make the most of your experience in any of them.

You're one step away from meeting your best partner in business.
