Tara Reed developed Kollecto, an art collection platform without knowing how to code. Her app was eventually accepted into the 500 Startups Accelerator with 400 active users and around $30k in art sales.
Following the success of the app, Kollecto, Reed got invited to host a TEDx talk. Right after the talk, she received a lot of email messages from other non-technical entrepreneurs who had ideas for apps but did not know how to build them. Reed first turned them down but she kept receiving those email messages so she thought of a way to help them.
She organized a boot camp where she taught about five entrepreneurs how to build their apps without code. Later, other entrepreneurs signed up. This gave birth to Apps Without Code, a startup school that offers webinars, coaching and an intensive boot camp, according to Forbes. As the founder and CEO of Apps Without Code, Reed has been helping build successful businesses to date.
