We exist to create exceptional value for people and their ideas.
We do this by providing mentorship and capital for startups through our EdTech and Digital Health accelerators as well as full-time code education via The Iron Yard Academy.
Through our large, deep and growing network of instructors, mentors, programmers, designers, entrepreneurs, investors, employers and collaborative spaces we have developed a thriving community where serendipity happens en-masse.
We are people-centric. We put our students, teams, investors, and supporters first in all of our decision making. Our success is entirely dependent on their success.
Our challenge is immense. The world has huge problems that need to be solved, many of which technology is perfectly suited to address. Companies around the globe are answering this call, but anyone with boots on the ground can feel the acute shortage of people needed to rise to the occasion. That gap is widening right now, and over the next decade the shortfall will effect industries, economies, businesses and individuals as they fight to add value in digital world.
The Iron Yard is a solution at that juncture of supply, demand, business and a broken education system. We are committed to training up the highest-quality developers and startups in the world, both in skill and in character.
We want to accomplish this alongside talented, passionate people who share our vision, love what they do, and want to have a whole lot of fun along the way.
