UP School is a VC backed start-up dedicated to addressing both the gender gap and the talent gap in the tech industry. Our mission revolves around providing free, live, online vocational training that focuses on identifying and nurturing the right talent for the right job. Once our students successfully graduate, UP School extends its support by aiding them in their job search and ensuring they remain part of our supportive community, which boasts over 2000 (and counting!) female role models in the tech field. Notably, companies such as Getir, Ford, and ING have placed their trust in UP School to recruit highly talented female developers.

We are genuinely excited about the prospect of becoming a diversity partner for your company. Our primary objective is to actively promote and encourage qualified female candidates to explore diverse roles within the tech industry. With a strong emphasis on female empowerment, we aspire to assist companies in achieving greater diversity by seamlessly integrating these talented women into their organisations.

Why UP School?


We believe in the power of gender equality. At UP School, we're on a mission to empower women and underrepresented minorities in the tech industry.


The World Economic Forum's Gender Gap Report 2021 predicts it will take 135.6 years to close the gender gap. That's too long. That's why we're committed to bridging the gender and talent gaps in tech.
