The Holberton School
Applications now open for September 8th, 2020
Puerto Rico's evolving technology scene has been a prominent driver of economic growth over the last years. To incentivize it, the local government offers tax benefits that are attracting startups and established tech companies. Puerto Rico is now growing into a vibrant startup ecosystem and a growing community of entrepreneurs.
This rapid growth is creating a high demand for tech-skilled professionals that the island cannot meet. According to a recent study in Puerto Rico, founders of local tech firms reported that access to talent is their biggest obstacle. The need for talent is not only centered on technical skills, but also on soft skills such as critical thinking, teamwork, and communication.
Holberton Puerto Rico brings a scalable, first-rate education model built by Silicon Valley software engineering experts. It is an innovative education curriculum for anyone that wants to learn programming. The central focus of the School is to increase diversity in the tech industry and remove barriers to high-quality education.
Our San Juan Campus will not only support the development of a high-skilled tech talent workforce, but also the growth of tech companies in Puerto Rico. This will allow to rebuild as an innovation-driven economy and compete globally.Schedule a Visit Today
Part of what makes Holberton unique is that we don't require any prior knowledge of coding, so we attract diverse people from diverse backgrounds.
