Orten.io is trying to create a platform where people no matter the background, social status, gender, religion can meet and be inspired to cooperate within tech entrepreneurship in Sweden.
The Academy offers workshops, part-time and immersive coding program and selects students only based on skill and that fit the requirements of coming from low-income areas, female and minority groups. Internship in Tech companies after the academy will be provided. The first batch of Academy graduated Nov 2017, second Academy launches Aug 2019.
We help local small business to create simple websites that look awesome. Not only we create better online presence for our clients but also it is created by our talents that have gone through our Coding Academy. We introduced a coding bootcamp in the low income areas of Sweden, our requirements we prioritize female and people from minority groups with no need of prior experience to coding. In 16 weeks we created the next tech talents. Now you can hire them to create your next website?
Orten.io is bringing the tech events to the so called segregated parts of Sweden, that are only perceived in media as "No-Go Zones”. We condemn the use of the word and we are taking back the meaning of it. These areas where the word multicultural means exchange of creativity and new energies expressing themselves. We want to express it through Tech Entrepreneurship.
Bringing world class startup founders, innovators, investors and partners to inspire and engage with the local communities. Focusing on finding talent in the suburbs that want to venture into entrepreneurship and tech. Also breaking barriers that will lead to inclusion and diversity in the startup scene in Sweden.
