Austen Allred on Launching Lambda School and Learning from Failure
He had an idea. But he didn’t know how to make it happen.
So he lived in his car. Got a job at a marketing firm. His company got funded, then it failed. But he worked hard and learned fast.
Now, Austen Allred is the Co-Founder and CEO of Lambda School, a 9-month, immersive program that gives students the tools and training to launch new careers in tech—from the comfort of your own home. Students only pay once they are hired after the program, so Lambda is completely accountable for the results they promise.
