Level Up Your Technology Business and Make an Impact in Your Community by Joining the CodeLaunch PCL (Professional Coder League) 

CodeLaunch presents a unique opportunity for professional software development teams to level up developer skill, experience, business development, recruiting, retention, team culture, and employee pride. The CodeLaunch PCL (Professional Coder League) is turning developers into impactful heroes who can help launch startups and make dreams come true. Entering a CodeLaunch PCL (Professional Coder League) Hackathon Team into a CodeLaunch event near you unlocks a multitude of benefits. Let’s explore the valuable advantages that await companies who choose to be part of CodeLaunch.

Level Up Developer Skill and Experience

Whether working on your company’s proprietary tools and products, or consulting for 3rd parties to build theirs, developers can get stuck in a rut. Working on the same product every day can get old to engineering minds eager to learn and build new things. Enter CodeLaunch – we pair the very best startups who accelerate through our challenging startup competition with dev teams and these startups often need new emerging and edge-tech solutions that developers LOVE to work on and learn on. Your devs bring these experiences and skills back to your business goals after CodeLaunch.

Business Development, Recruiting and Retention

By aligning with CodeLaunch your brand is now amongst the elite in your market. This attracts new business, new people, and retains the people you have. By inviting prospects and your own key stakeholders and clients to see the great work your team is capable of, you are building a network of “Brand Ambassadors” – people who will come away from CodeLaunch impressed and sure that your organization is leading the way in business, culture, and a commitment to uplifting your community.

Win the Title “Hackathon Team Champion” and $2,000 USD ($36K MXN) for your Developers

Working on a startup’s product for two 12-hour days is tough. That’s why we bring some unique rewards to every event specifically for the devs who give their skill and energy to our finalist startups. It starts with our PCL Jerseys which we bring to every dev on the team and represent your brand as well as CodeLaunch and PCL. These devs are heroes just like our favorite athletes! One team’s startup will win the actual event on stage, as chosen by the live audience. This team gets two more incredible rewards: The one of a kind Hackathon Team Championship Belt trophy (looks great in the office and is commonly worn proudly at the office all year) and we hand the winning dev team $2,000 USD ($36K MXN) in cash on stage too!

By dedicating their skills and knowledge to accelerating the development of a CodeLaunch finalist’s product, companies can make a tangible impact within a focused timeframe.
