Turbo-charge your app-making skills

Work closely with Apple Design Award winner Jeremy Olson and his team to learn how to design and market successful apps.

Who’s it for?


How many app designers do you know in Charlotte? That’s right, very few, but the demand is through the roof. Do the math. Specializing in app design could double your rates.


You are already half way there! Learning about design and marketing strengthens team collaboration and allows you to even take an app from start to finish.

Entrepreneurs & Project Managers

Learn about idea validation, app monetization, the design process, and how to get your app featured by TechCrunch or Apple.


Maximize your employees’ potential to design apps your customers will love.

"What does it cost your company when you lose a customer because they didn't understand how to use your app? Come to this workshop and learn how to build systems that your customers will love!" - Scott Lien, former Bank of America Technology Executive in charge of online and mobile banking, current Angel Investor

Workshop, not just in name

We’ll talk about a topic then immediately apply what we learned.

A small, intimate setting (25 people max) ensures everyone will get plenty of individual attention from our 4 app experts
