“…Next Academy, a coding school in Malaysia, has set up a RM1 million ‘Next Foundation’ scholarship fund to help underprivileged youths achieve their dreams.”
Since its inception, Next Academy has given new work opportunities to its graduates while others have gone on to build their startups. It’s incredible to think that it all began with one person’s initiative to pick up a skill and his determination to increase the number of professional coders and advance the tech community in Malaysia.
They have made way for many entrepreneurs to reach their dreams and have got their graduates employed in the best of the companies like Manulife, GrabTaxi, MindValley, RevAsia and many more.
Malaysian coding school NEXT Academy said it has raised US$300,000 (RM1.3 million) from 500 Startups in a pre-seed round that would accelerate its goal of teaching a million people in South-East Asia coding and growth hacking skills over the next five years.
Although 75% of students had no prior coding experience before the bootcamp, almost all of them went on to build their own startups or join existing companies such as GrabTaxi, Manulife, MindValley, RevAsia and more.
