Coderhouse, an Argentinian EdTech platform, has secured a $13.5M investment to continue hiring and training instructors to continue its expansion across LatAm, and in particular Mexico and Colombia
The investment round was led by monashees, with support from Reach Capital and Y Combinator, as well as existing investors and local companies.
In 2020 more than 15,000 students utilised Coderhouse for training, reflecting the worldwide shift towards online training. Since its launch, over 50,000 students have used the Argentinian EdTech platform to complete courses.
Founded in 2014 by Christian Patiño, Coderhouse charges $100 for courses which are delivered through small lessons with a few instructors aided by assistants. Over 30 courses are currently available on the platform. The company has partnered with several organisations to develop the course content, including Google, Rappi and Mercado Libre.
“…Our mission is to “democratize quality education in LATAM” , that is why we believe that it is very important to reach every corner of Latin America, with a high quality offer at a very accessible price. This round will help us get a little closer to our goal…” Christian Patiño, CEO, Coderhouse
The courses on offer include UX/UI design, coding, data science, digital marketing, and other IT based skills. The investment will also be used by Coderhouse to expand its course offering and to develop its platform by adding new features and enabling it to cope with a potential surge in registrations from across the region.
“…We are growing in all metrics and it is essential that we continue to invest in the resources we make available to our students so that we can offer exceptional value and a great learning experience…” Christian Patiño, CEO, Coderhouse
