Is SkilledUp Life right for your TECH FOUNDER JOURNEY?

Published by: SkilledUpLife, Founder of SkilledUp Life

Are you building or want to build a tech company?

If you like to join SkilledUp Life, consider the following:

  1. Can you afford £30/month for 12 months? Or £300/year upfront? If you just join for 1 month, most likely, SkilledUp Life is not right for you.

  2. Are you ready to learn from us and follow our guidelines? If you do not engage and become a pain in the back side, SkilledUp Life may not work for you. We had many first-time tech founders (and still do have some of them), who do not engage and follow what we recommend. Result: they get frustrated and leave us. We get frustrated of not being able to help.

  3. Do you know where you want to reach in 12 months time? SkilledUp Life is ok for adding 1 or 2 team members, but we are great for adding whole teams.

  4. Are you a first time tech founder or do you have experience of building tech companies? If you are a first timer, from where are you gaining the knowledge to build your tech company? If you have no clue of how to build a tech company, SkilledUp Life team, can only show you how to build teams. You need to get the knowledge to build tech companies from elsewhere, e.g. Techcelerate, accelerator, etc.

  5. What are you building? Got a website URL handy you can share, if not, some sort of slide deck? We want to know, so that we can provide the best help.

  6. SkilledUp Life takes effort to make it work for your company. If you are joining, join with a commitment to make it work. If you think, it might not work, then your actions will follow your initial attitude and most likely, SkilledUp Life will not work for you.

Once you have answered the above questions, then we can help you achieve your dream of building a tech company.

All the best.

No code made it faster to build products

Published by: SkilledUpLife, Founder of SkilledUp Life

No code made it faster to build products. SkilledUp Life ( makes it faster to build startup teams for those who do not have the cash to hire talent.

We know the first is already revolutionary. But I believe what we are doing at SkilledUp Life will also be a game changer.

However, No code + SkilledUp Lifers are not enough to achieve success.

What is missing is acquiring the know-how, especially if you are a first-time founder. Of course, you can read as much as you want, but what matters is access to a group of trusted fellow founders who have gone through the same challenges and got battle scars to prove it. And this is what the new Techcelerate 2023 ( provides.

In 2023, both SkilledUp Life and Techcelerate will work closely to increase the success rate of tech founders.

Having to do the impossible

Published by: SkilledUpLife, Founder of SkilledUp Life

At the start of the 2nd year (1st Aug 2021), we set a target of achieving 10x growth on the supply side of - free talent for tech startups.

In the first 12 months, we achieved our target of signing up 1,000 Volunteers with 24 hours to go. To 10x in the next 12 months, we had to continually up our game.

Now that we have reached the last week of the second year, we have a mammoth task of adding 2,000 new Volunteers to SkilledUp Life.

From where we are standing and based on our past performance, this seems like an impossible task to achieve. But we are going to give our best shot.

What we achieved this past week, which so far has been the best week, we need to achieve the same result almost every day if we are to reach this target.

To give us a chance of achieving, all our team members are being called to help.

When was the last time you chased a result like this? What tactics did you deploy? What was the result? Love to hear.

Do wish us all the best, please. Thank you.
