Vilnius-based data science career school Turing College has raised a seed round of $1.05 million. The round was led by Iron Wolf Capital and will allow Turing College to expand their student base into the Dutch and Estonian markets. The company which was part of the Y Combinator W21 batch has now secured $2.5 million in funding in total.
“Our learning platform is now developed and successfully road-tested. This means it is now time to bring our offering to other countries across Europe. Initially, we will be focusing on the Netherlands and Estonia. Because we are community-based, and (conditions permitting) our program includes physical meetups and social events, rolling out our offering means building new communities of learners in the countries we are expanding to. We follow this approach because our experience, and the feedback we have received from our learners, show that having a supportive learning community is essential for success.”Turing College’s CEO Lukas Kaminskis
