The best Lambda School alternative might not be a bootcamp

Bootcamps provide a "one-size-fits-all" approach to learning. We believe there is a better way. 1-on-1 custom-tailored mentorships for an affordable monthly flat fee. No tricks, no fineprint.

MentorCruise vs. Bootcamps

Flexible, personal experiences

At MentorCruise, your learning and progress is tailored to you. Need to adhere to a certain schedule or work around your studies around work? No problem.

Fit in a box

Bootcamps like Lambda School need to adhere to some requirements like a curriculum or even full time-table to be able to deliver content to all students at once.

End-to-end experience

MentorCruise doesn't end. If your goal is to get hired, you can work with your mentor until you sign that offer. If you want to level up a skillset of yours, you can do so for however long it takes.

From A to B and not further

Bootcamps like Lambda School have strict entry and exit requirements. If you don't have the right skills already, you might never get in. If you went through the curriculum, you're out!

MentorCruise is affordable

On average, mentees will spend between $400 to $1,000 during their learnings on their mentors.

Bootcamps are not affordable

The traditional upfront tuition at Lambda School is $30,000. The average cost of a bootcamp is $13,500 – 14x higher than MentorCruise!
