About

We adopt a people-centered approach to transform talented individuals into software engineers, allowing us to tap into both Mexico’s growing tech sector and the global demand for bilingual, bicultural engineers.

 

PARALLEL PROBLEMS/OPPORTUNITIES:

Mexico currently lacks high-quality tech talent. Migrants bring a spirit of entrepreneurship and creativity to the country, giving Mexico a competitive advantage.

SOLUTION:

Powered by Hack Reactor, we unlock migrants’ tech talent through an immersive program designed around market demands and students’ needs.

MISSION

Talent is everywhere, but opportunities are not.

We exist to provide the tools and education in technology that migrants need to succeed.
Our software engineering program is designed around the unique needs of our students—we foster integration and personal development, while filling the global demand for software engineers.

Our goal is to find tech talent in migrants and unlock it.   
We envision a world where deportees, returnees and,refugees have access to opportunities to enhance their talent and to create technology. This will improve their lives and our societies.

 

Our Model

Tuition Based on Success

You don’t pay anything upfront. You’ll start paying back your tuition and stipend once you’ve secured a job in tech.

Acquire Loan

With our financial partners, we designed a student loan that works for you. You don’t need a credit history or collateral in Mexico. The rates are well below market average.

Repay

Once you start working, you’ll start paying back your tuition and stipend. With our financial partners, you’ll be able to devise a payment scheme that works for you.

Who We Serve

Employers

Tech companies in Mexico, ranging from startups to multinationals, are growing rapidly and need talented software engineers. Hola Code builds relationships with these companies and ensures students have their foot in the door before graduation.

Students

Hola Code is not only a coding program, it’s a strong community and network. Through our leadership curricula, students improve their soft skills, learn how to manage stress, and get access to counseling. Students also increase their incomes up to 10x upon landing employment in the tech sector.

The Community 

Hola Code has partnerships with many organizations that advocate for the migrant community. We support family reunification, financial inclusion, and the creation of social capital to foster integration.
