Holberton, making software engineering education affordable and accessible globally, has raised $20 million in Series B funding led by Redpoint eventures with new investor Pearson Ventures and participation by existing investors Daphni, Imaginable Futures, Reach Capital and Trinity Ventures.
The funding accelerates the global expansion of Holberton’s network of 18 campuses and the delivery of the “OS of Education” to universities and training centers.
“Since our founding in Silicon Valley in 2015, we have had a vision of making software engineering education affordable and accessible to everybody around the world,” said Julien Barbier, CEO and co-founder of Holberton.
“We started with one small campus of 30 students in San Francisco to prove our model. Today we have a network of 18 campuses across all continents except Antarctica,” Barbier added.
Holberton aims to help one million students around the world access first-rate education by 2030, directly via its Holberton School Network, or indirectly with education institutions and training centers.
