HOW IT WORKS...
The Portal trains apprentices in marketable skills and we place them in real-world projects so they can build the experience needed to get a job. In addition, we provide high-quality services for startups and businesses at any stage.
Collaboration comes first.
Our apprentices are excited and eager to learn about the problems real companies are trying to solve and the solution that they want to provide to change the world. Apprentices have the opportunity to work closely with our clients to help bring their vision to life.
We'll bring our teams together to help companies find the best solution for what they want to accomplish. Our industry mentors guide our apprentices on the best practices and methods needed to work with companies. Apprentices work directly with companies to set goals together, agree on milestones, metrics for success, and a timeline.
The services we provide are fully customized to meet our clients' needs. Apprentices are encouraged to update our clients regularly and meet them at their convenience to make sure everything is exactly how they want it.
