Prentus builds tools for bootcamps to get every graduate hired fast. Our belief is that technology, accessibility, and distribution are the core problems preventing talented graduates from getting their dream job. By arming forward-thinking schools with tools to help their grads, we can tackle these problems head on.
At my last startup, we needed some help to get our product launched. As a mentor at a bootcamp, I posted in Slack asking if any grad wanted to get some experience. Evan answered the call.
Evan was a coding bootcamp grad. He had been job searching for 9 months telling companies he would work for them for FREE. No one answered. No one gave him a chance.
Once he started working at my company, I was pleasantly surprised. He had a positive attitude, was a fast learner, and worked well with the team. We wouldn't have been able to launch without him.
Evan finally got a full-time job after working with us for 3 months. It took him 1 year to get a job he was qualified for. I was restless thinking "If someone as talented as Evan takes a year to get hired, this system is broken."
That's when Prentus was started.
Our first version focused on getting bootcamp grads experience by helping startups build their MVPs. After 10 unpaid internships, I went back to the drawing board. Unpaid internships were not inclusive and we wanted to build something for everyone - regardless of their circumstances.
From there, I spent months interviewing 100s of VPs, recruiters, bootcamp staff, and bootcamp grads. A platform started forming from this research along the way.
Finally, in April 2021, Prentus launched our talent portal to help bootcamps make hiring their grads the preferred choice for companies. It combined elements of top recruiting platforms and dating apps to reframe how companies think about bootcamp grads.
But this is just step 1 of bridging the gap between bootcamp and career. The other pieces are under construction and we won't stop building until we get everyone access to their dream job. That's the Prentus Promise.
When we make a promise, we deliver. Every single time.
Everyone is different. We will take the time to understand your unique problems.
Every day, we try to be 1% better. And make your life 1% better too.
We always ask "is there a better way?" and are the first to test out solutions.
Even if it's ugly we say it how it is. Truth helps to move the world forward.
