The demand for Technology Talents is increasing all over the world. According to a study, 700,000 additional technology experts will be needed in 2023 in Germany, but it is estimated that only 10,000 will be educated for these roles. To solve this problem, we have created Techlabs. TechLabs offers especially students and young professionals a platform and community that enables them to acquire state of the art technology skills and helps them to take part in topics such as artificial intelligence, user experience or web development. Our Digital Shaper program is built on three key principles: Online learning, local communities and project work. This makes the program unique.
