Join thousands on EntryLevel

The experience at EntryLevel cemented my grasp on Product Management processes, and was an experience I used in depth during my interview. Since I didn't have any direct product management experience, the EntryLevel experience strengthened my profile in the eyes of the hiring managers.

Ayomide has received three job offers since completing the program, from Ventures Platform Nigeria, M-KOPA and Wild Fusion. Ayomide is currently working as a Financial Data Analyst at Wild Fusion. While searching for a full time role, he found that he had tangible examples of his work through EntryLevel.

I successfully got a job at LoftyInc Capital Management as a Venture Analyst. It was very useful, I won't lie. From deal sourcing to deal diligence, there was a lot I didn't know and I’m still learning. I still have the Notion link bookmarked to refer back to it.

I received an offer for a Sales Engineer role. The process engineering knowledge I obtained during the program stood out to my employers, as water treatment is one of the industries in which they work.

When I did the EntryLevel program, I was playing a dual role of Product Owner and Quality Assurance on a team. Two weeks ago I was offered a full Product Owner role (no Quality Assurance) at the same company for a different team.  I learned a lot and gained a lot of insight from the coursework through the program so, I'll forever be grateful for that! I’ve finally made the transition!

I started off the blockchain experience without knowing what a smart contract was. I do have programming experience but the 30-day intensive experience helped me get there quickly with the accountability of a team environment. The EntryLevel team introduced me to Drift post graduation and I was in the team a few weeks later.

What if I don't finish?

Congratulations! You’ve bought a course.

Most companies charge you thousands of dollars to help you have “skin in the game”. While its true that financial cost can be an incentive, if that's all they cared about they would refund you when you finish.

If you don’t finish, you retain access to the content. (People who opt for a refund lose access 2 weeks after the course is over) In essence, you have nothing to lose because the worst case is you’ve paid $99 for a course. Which is what most companies do anyway. We just want to provide a way to incentivise you to get to the finish line.

How does EntryLevel make money?

EntryLevel makes money in a number of ways:

  • Premium perks are offered upon completion of the program, such as premium certificates, bonus content and other perks.
  • Commitment Bonds that are forfeited when people don't finish
  • Enterprise/Business recruitment fees

What if I can't afford $100

You can still enter the course!
We offer financial aid to those who are unable to pay the commitment bond.
To apply for financial aid, follow the steps below:

  • Create an EntryLevel account - this step is completely free.
  • When you log in to your account, you can select the course to sign up to.
  • You will be taken to a payment page. On this page you will be given the option to apply for financial aid.

Financial aid is granted based on your application. We also have a Referral Scheme!

What are the premium perks?

At the end of the program (if you graduate) you are offered the Premium Perks, which include:

  • A premium certificate
  • Continued access to the course content
  • Bonus content and resources based on the program you completed

To purchase these perks all you have to do is let us keep your commitment bond! Please note that the Premium Perks are completely optional.
Users who claim their refund will still receive a standard certificate of completion and will have their access to the content revoked after the program ends.
