The programming school focused on the CEE region, which was founded by Hungarian entrepreneurs in 2014, has received € 7 million in investment capital and now plans to open the Codecool Campus in Vienna. The underlying idea is that the international shortage of IT specialists can be counteracted by alternative IT training programmes alongside the traditional courses of study offered at universities. Investors have already recognised the potential. According to an analysis carried out by the platform Dealroom, the investment volume in the so-called EdTech sector almost doubled in 2020 and currently equals € 10 billion.
