This summer, the Dingman Center will be conducting interviews with the fifteen student startups who are participating in our Terp Startup summer accelerator at the College Park WeWork. Participating student entrepreneurs received a stipend up to $5,000 that would enable them to work exclusively on their startups over eight weeks in the summer.
Founder & CEO: Felipe De Padua, MS ’19, Software Engineering
DC: Tell us about your startup. What problem are you solving and for whom?
De Padua: Current schools teach little to none of the skills that are key to the future generation, such as financial literacy, entrepreneurship and coding. The latter is by far the one that is having the biggest growth and demand.
Code&Play provides online coding classes taught live by real engineers. While providing the sought-after personalized and “face-to-face” learning experience from real instructors, all the classes take place remotely, providing convenience and worldwide accessibility to our service. This allows us to scale and reach students in many parts of the country and the world.
