Startup studio Nana Bianca is betting on Epicode, the school that teaches coding online to young people with the goal of filling a digital skills gap through short, intensive courses that meet the demands of the job market. “The goals of the Epicode project correspond to the mission Nana Bianca has set for itself: to support the exponential increase in the use of digital tools in everyday life and to encourage a future-proof innovation-oriented educational culture,” said Paolo Barberis, co-founder of Nana Bianca.
What Epicode does
One year after its inception, Epicode recently closed a €10 million A round and, with the birth of Career Acceleration Platform, has united some of the fastest-growing companies in the European ed-tech scene. The new platform, which operates in Europe, was born from the union of Epicode School (Italy) with Strive School (a company founded between the US and Berlin, and incubated by Y Combinator). Focused in Europe, it trained more than 1,000 students in 2021. “Epicode was created to accelerate the transition to a digital economy in an inclusive and sustainable way,” comments Ivan Ranza, CEO and Founder of Epicode. “We are the meeting point between those who want to find jobs in the tech world and companies that really want to innovate. The goal is to become a leader in Europe and evolve from coding bootcamp to Career Acceleration Platform.”
