What the CEO has to say: “Raising funds is helping us support and accelerate our vision of creating this OS of education. Many educational entities need help and trolls to better support their students and their staff. It is now that they need our help, again COVID has accelerated the digital transformation and clearly there are a lot of gaps that need to be filled. We are now a SaaS company which offers other businesses, universities or nonprofits to use their tools and contents so that they can run their educational training programs at scale with a better experience while increasing the quality of education.” — Rudy Rigot, Co-founder of Holberton. 

“For the first time since our creation we have started working with universities to help them create a better experience and add hands on experience on top of their traditional methodology. Everyone is happy, schools, students and teachers because they prefer to focus on teaching and not spend too much time on correcting projects. We expect to see 5,000 students join this year up from 500 in 2019 and see the network expand in with new schools in the U.S., Europe and Africa.” — Julein Barbier, Co-founder of Holberton. 
What the investors have to say: “They have proven successful in breaking down barriers of cost and access while delivering a world class curriculum. With the concept of OS of education as a service they provide customers with all the tools they need for success. Customers can be nonprofit impact investors who want to fill gaps. In how they attach a post COVID learning environment or corporations who want to provide the best training possible as education providers themselves or employee development programs.” — General Manager at Redpoint Ventures.
