Bridging the Talent Gap in Hong Kong
Accelerate enables students to acquire valuable skills to forge the career of their dreams; their mission is to bridge the talent gap in Hong Kong. A staggering 91% of their graduates go on to be hired after completing their programs and their technology is being used in leading companies such as AXA, Standard Chartered, Kaplan and ANX.
Their full time software engineering, data science and machine learning programs are supplemented by a Summer coding bootcamp and part time courses in Blockchain, Growth Hacking & Big Data Analytics. Their programs are built using best-in-class instructors, proprietary curriculums and a cutting-edge online learning platform.
Given the quality of their tuition and the career value they provide Accelerate has adopted Accredible to deliver certificates to their graduates.
“Accredible helps our students show off the hard work they’ve put in to learn new skills and it helps us get the word out about our business in a very organic way.” – Jim Cassidy, CEO at Code Institute.
“Accelerate are a leading example of what can be achieved with high quality, blended learning. Their impressive growth and amazing employment results are amongst the best we’ve seen. We’re thrilled that they’ve chosen Accredible to showcase their graduate certificates!” – Alan Heppenstall, CTO of Accredible.
Accredible is an industry-leading digital credentialing platform which allows users to securely issue, manage, track, and verify their certificates and badges. Its platform is used by over 400 organizations worldwide, including Berklee, Kaplan University, and Google. More than 1,000,000 students have received certificates, badges or blockchain credentials through their platform.
Founded on the vision that the single greatest opportunity for better lives is education, Accelerate aspires to democratise education and bridge the global talent gaps in Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, BlockChain and beyond.
We do this by leveraging our best-in-class instructors, proprietary curriculums and cutting-edge online learning platform in 3 ways: through an innovative campus to accelerate practical learning, a placement model to ensure that talent is harnessed in the right roles, and a SaaS platform to enable other organisations to operate their own advanced technology learning environments.
In our first year in Hong Kong Accelerate has trained 500+ professionals with a 91% hiring success rate and has powered advanced learning environments to leading companies such as AXA, Standard Chartered, Kaplan and ANX. We have generated USD700K revenue with a cash-flow positive model and have recently launched in Singapore. We are raising a Series A round to enable us to service a growing pipeline of customers, advance & scale our SaaS platform, and expand into markets such as China, Japan, Australia and India.
