Anthony Hughes is the co-founder and CEO of Tech Elevator, a 14
to 30-weeks coding bootcamp that teaches students in-demand tech
skills that can lead to meaningful careers in the tech industry.
After reading that 2,300 students have graduated from Tech
Elevator, with 90% of whom secured tech positions at companies
within 6 months, I felt compelled to find out more about the story
behind the company.
Anthony has been nominated twice for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award (2020 and 2021). Before starting Tech Elevator, he was the President of the Software Craftsmanship Guild, another fast-paced program that teaches the skills required for a tech career which Learning House acquired in April 2015.
In today's episode of Tech Talks Daily, Anthony shares his story. He discusses how Covid-19 has accelerated the need for a digital workforce and why anyone thinking of joining the tech industry should do it now as the career leap will be worth it. We also talk about how the modern-day coding bootcamps are helping companies meet the enormous demand for tech talent.
