Tech Training and Apprenticeship Startup Kenzie Academy Raises $4.2M
Kenzie Academy, a tech training and apprenticeship program, wants to usher in a new era of skills training programs—and has raised a $4.2 million seed round to attempt to so. Kenzie has also teamed up with Butler University, which is an investor in Kenzie. As part of the partnership, students who complete Kenzie Academy’s front-end web development, full-stack web development, and software engineering programs will receive a joint certificate from Kenzie Academy and Butler Executive Education.
Kenzie Academy scores $4.2 million, plans to expand school
Tech apprenticeship and coding school Kenzie Academy on Wednesday announced it has secured $4.2 million in seed funding—money it plans to use to expand its tech-focused educational offerings and grow its enrollment dramatically. Kenzie Academy’s college-alternative model combines one year of immersive learning with one year of paid work in Kenzie Studio, the company’s tech-consulting subsidiary. Since its opening here, Kenzie has offered training in software engineering, but this fall also will begin offering “intensive” course work in digital marketing and user experience—UX—design.
Butler University and Kenzie Academy announces partnership to offer joint-certificates for Kenzie students in the software development programs.
