Success stories from our community

Landed a job

SIDE PRJCT played a huge part in my career when I was an aspiring Product Manager! Here, I found my first product team, and we got together to ideate, build, test, and demo a more inclusive solution to an actual problem. SIDE PRJCT gave me a setting where I could shift into a “grow by trying” mindset, building the practical experience I needed to help bring PMs, designers, and engineers together. I talked about it at least 75% in my interviews. Call me a power user, but I love the community SIDE PRJCT inspires best of all.

Gained real-world experience

Joining SIDE PRJCT was one of the best decisions I've made as a junior software engineer coming out of a coding bootcamp. I was able to gain real-world experience working in a structured team environment with a project manager, designers, and experienced mentors. This filled in the missing gap from coding bootcamp.

When should I consider joining the SIDE PRJCT Community?

If you are an aspiring PM, designer, or engineer in the midst of career change or have the desire to pursue an entrepreneurial journey but do not really know where to start, by becoming a member of our community, you will be able to deliver a successful side project, get feedback from industry professionals and boost your career.


Do I need to have a team in order to join?

No. We will help you find the right teammates and make sure to provide you with actionable advice on how to build the right team for your project and which pitfalls to avoid.


What would be my time commitment?

It depends on how much time you have at your disposal. If you have 15-20 hours per week to invest in your side project and want to go the immersive route, we would be happy to support you! However, we have also seen our members who could only invest 5-10 hours per week and prefer a moderate pace achieve outstanding results as well.


How much time on average do people invest into a side project?

Given the experience of our members, they invest somewhere between 3 and 9 months but it depends on how much time you invest weekly, your motivations and end goal.


What is a Sprint? 

Glad you asked! We define Sprints as a 2-week long practical cohort-based building experience focused on a specific deliverable, for example, a ready-to-build concept, tested prototype, prioritized roadmap, or a shipped MVP. Sprints build on each other, but you can decide how often and when to participate. We shifted to a Sprints model instead of a one-size-fits-all 12-week Accelerator model because it accounts for different learning speeds and various life events that might happen while you build. 


What kind of support do I get as a Builder Pass Member?

As a Builder Pass Member you will get the maximum support to help you succeed with your project. You are gaining unlimited access to our Sprint programs which will take you from 0 to MVP, as well as all workshops and project-specific mentorship.
