  • Ironhack — a tech boot camp school with nine campuses around the world — has closed $4 million in funding led by JME Capital

Ironhack — a tech school with nine campuses in the U.S., Europe, and LATAM — announced it closed $4 million in funding led by JME Capital. Additional investors in this round include All Iron Ventures and Brighteye Ventures. Including this round, Ironhack has raised $7 million total.

This round of funding will position Ironhack as the leading tech school worldwide and further increase their product offering as well as their expansion in Latin America.

“JME has validated the investor excitement and the appetite for high-quality brands within the fast-growing coding industry,” said Ariel Quinones, Co-Founder of Ironhack. “Having their support for a second time is important to us because they believe in the value of the programs, and with their support, we continue to work toward making Ironhack the world’s top tech school.”

Ironhack has more than 3,000 graduates and 700 world-renowned partner companies like Visa, Facebook, and Uber. And it has a global job placement rate of 85% students within 6 months of graduating.

Ironhack’s vision is to offer the most up-to-date tech bootcamps to bring diversity to the tech industry and empower students to be employable straight after graduation through an approach that focuses on helping students shape their own professional experience — along with their own personal goals as web developers — UX designers or Data Analysts.

“We have been supporting Ironhack since its first financing round and they have shown impressive execution and managerial skills,” added Jose Maria Hernanz Fernandez-Aguado of JME Venture Capital. “We are thrilled to participate in this round to continue supporting its vision of how education should be transformed. In addition, we are happy to welcome new partners like Brighteye that bring a lot of experience in the EdTech arena.”

Ironhack is known as one of the top-ranked Tech School offering 9-weeks intensive and immersive courses in Web Development, UX/UI Design, and Data Analytics and with campuses located in Madrid, Barcelona, Miami, Paris, Mexico, Berlin, Amsterdam, Sao Paulo, and Lisbon.
