We bring in experts from various fields to share their experiences and answer your questions. You’ll have exclusive access to ask them anything you can dream of and find out the secrets to their success. They’re prepared and excited to share it all with you.
Each of these sessions (along with the Q&A sessions with us) are wrapped into an exclusive private podcast that you can listen to on the go! This is a side project after all. We value your time!
When you join the Side Project Accelerator you join a mastermind group of side-project hackers that will help hold you accountable for getting your shit done!
Here are some examples of what went down in our community in the first batch:
We believe that this is key to being successful with your side project. We’ll teach you everything that we learned while growing Hacking UI from a side project into a full time gig that allowed us to quit our jobs.
For each of the first 8 weeks you’ll get a new video lesson and work through these lessons at the same time as the rest of the members of the batch, sharing experiences, experiment results and promotion opportunities. All lessons are available in both video and podcast format, so you can consume them at your own convenience and optimize your time.
In these lessons you’ll learn our ENTIRE methodology, the same methodology that we used to build and scale Hacking UI and allow us to quit our jobs.
We’ll share with you:
Sounds good so far? Check out the entire syllabus to see the content of each lesson.
Success doesn’t happen overnight. That’s why when you join The Side Project Accelerator, it doesn’t end when your batch is over. You get lifetime support through the community to make your side project a success.
That means access forever to:
As a members of the Side Project Accelerator you will get exclusive 1 hour live Q&A sessions with us (David & Sagi) where we will answer any question you might have! We also have weekly “office hours” where we answer questions in the community Slack group.
We are here to accompany you along your journey, and we know this is a long term thing, so we’re here for you in the long term to make sure you succeed!
After working on our side project for the past two and a half years, we were able to quit our jobs and do it full time. Now it’s your turn, and we want to help you get there.
He’s an entrepreneur at heart and is always thinking up the next business idea. In 2012 he co-founded a competitive intelligence company called TapDog. TapDog was acquired by SimilarWeb, where he worked as a senior developer and team leader for the last two and half years.
He now lives in Tel Aviv, Israel and is an avid reader, traveler and music lover. If he’s not at his desk hacking away on the next side project, you can probably find him at some Burning Man festival.
Sagi is the design half of Hacking UI. He’s been in the industry for longer than he’d like to remember, working with large companies such as Fiverr and Ebay. He was a co-founder of TagDog, and when it was acquired he became the Head of Product Design at SimilarWeb, and has scaled the design team there from 0 to 6 designers.
Known in many circles as the originator of the side project, Sagi had his first taste of side project success in 2011 when he launched Pixel Perfect Magazine, the largest Israeli design blog and community to this day.
Today he is also a mentor at Google Campus in Tel Aviv, working with startups to improve their UX. He lives in Herzliya, Israel with his wife, two kids and dog. When he’s not up to his eyeballs in Sketch layers or writing about the next big productivity hack, he’s probably practicing Shaolin Kung Fu.
We met in the summer of 2012 when we joined as co-founders of a startup called Moolta. Back then Sagi had an Israeli design blog, Pixel Perfect Magazine. We joined the UpWest Labs accelerator program with our startup and moved to Silicon Valley. We eventually did a major pivot and renamed our startup TapDog.
In early 2014 Tapdog was acquired by SimilarWeb, where we both worked for two and a half years in leadership roles. But just before we started to work at SimilarWeb we decided to launch Hacking UI.
We began with nothing, but quickly started growing an audience and monetizing. We continued to scale Hacking UI in terms of audience and income to the point that we were able to quit our jobs and work on it full time.
The price for the program is $999, and can either be paid in full or in 3 monthly payments of $333
We know that is not a small amount of money and that this is a big decision. We settled on this price for a few reasons:
You’ll notice the payment options are the same total price. We understand that some people want flexible pricing and others want to pay in full. We’re not going to penalize you for making one choice or the other. And don’t forget, only 50 people can join this batch of The Side Project Accelerator.
Important note: If you sign up for the payment plan option and cancel your payment plan early, you will lose access to The Side Project Accelerator lessons, community, and sessions (and won’t be able to buy access again).
No. In the next batch, the price will go up. We encourage you to get in there and make the effort to snatch your seat NOW. It’s lifetime access anyways, so you’ll enjoy the recordings of the lessons forever.
If you start the program and after seeing the first lesson don’t feel it’s for you, you can receive a full refund up to 2 weeks in! No questions asked.
