Last year, we received over 1,200 applicants from the US, Europe, Asia, and Africa to form a class of 40 students. Take a look at what we look for in our admissions process.
Kelvin is a sixteen year old aspiring software engineer and student from London, UK. He started programming at nine, gaining a diverse skill set in the past few years. He enjoys security research (receiving the Facebook Bug Bounty in Nov. 2012 at the age of thirteen), server management and building applications. On the technical side, Kelvin works with multiple languages, with high proficiency in PHP/Laravel.
Kelvin decided to apply to LeanGap to further his knowledge of entrepreneurship by gaining first-hand experience. LeanGap has kindled an interest in applying his skills to startup companies and he looks to build a startup company in the future.
Feven was born in Ethiopia and earned a full scholarship to ICS, one of the nation's most prestigious schools. She volunteers on a regular basis and cofounded a non profit that helps charities across the world.
She cofounded Aer, a platform that helps charities across the world get items they need for upcoming seasons. Aer succeeded in partnering with the Red Cross and is now expanding into developing countries like Ethiopia and Zimbabwe.
Jaxon started programming at the young age of 13. He started his first company when he was only 13 years old. Today he designs apps and helps other people learn how to code and design iOS apps and program.
Jaxon embraces learning new skills that help him design better apps and further his skills. He has also also been very fortunate to receive two WWDC student scholarships so far and he even met Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg, Johnny Ive and Craig Federighi. The motivations for Jaxon to go to LeanGap was that he would meet other like minded high school students, grow his knowledge on the world of entrepreneurship while also aiming to help start to create change for issues that exist in this world.
