Tech Elevator Announces Coding Bootcamp Campus in Detroit
DETROIT, MI – February 28, 2023 – Tech Elevator, an intensive educational provider helping individuals and companies gain in-demand technology skills for the modern workforce, is pleased to announce the opening of its new campus in Detroit, Michigan.
Tech Elevator’s Detroit campus will allow bootcamp students to access its world-class instructors through the online bootcamp, with locally focused career and placement support from our new Market Leader and supporting instructional staff. Students will also have access to the Tech Elevator’s local coworking space at TechTown Detroit—to meet with other students for paired programming, whiteboarding sessions, one-on-one meetings with staff, or simply to enjoy a game night with fellow classmates.
“The Detroit tech scene is exploding and we’re seeing more and more interest in Tech Elevator’s coding bootcamp from local career changers,” said Anthony Hughes, Co-Founder and CEO of Tech Elevator. “We’re expanding our footprint into Detroit to meet that growing demand and we look forward to making a big impact with local individuals, local companies and communities.”
To offer local job search support with in-market connections, Tech Elevator recently hired Michael Hale Jr. to run the Detroit campus operations, including oversight of admissions, student and alumni engagement, event coordination and business development.
Hale said: “It’s an exciting time for the Detroit tech community. In recent years, Michigan’s venture capital dollars increased substantially, Detroit itself has seen a surge in the growing talent pool, and the tech ecosystem continues to expand to include a diverse range of industries. There is so much opportunity for career changers in Detroit, and I’m excited to help facilitate transformation firsthand.”
Tech Elevator has placed more than 2,500 students in technology jobs at over 750 companies, which represents an aggregate lift in lifetime earnings of more than $2.6 billion. The coding bootcamp has eight other campuses located in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Jersey City, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Wilmington, in addition to its National Live Remote program serving students online around the country. Tech Elevator is committed to transparency in outcomes reporting through CIRR.org and has earned a reputation for industry-leading placement performance—with a graduation rate of 93% and a 180-day job placement rate of 90%.
