Momentum Learning Inc., a technology training company, has officially launched.
Momentum Learning will offer code-training courses to prepare professionals for software development jobs. The company expects to begin offering the three-month long courses starting in spring 2018, pending state approval.
The company was founded by CEO Jessica Mitsch and Chief Technology Officer Clinton Dreishbach and has partnered with American Underground in Durham.
“Momentum will make the Triangle’s tech talent pool even richer, boosting our national standing and benefiting everyone from our startups to our maturing companies to our full fledged corporate juggernauts,” said American Underground Executive Director Doug Speight in a release.
Mitsch and Dreishbach previously worked at The Iron Yards as an executive and director of academics, respectively. The two were also founders of The Iron Yards Durham campus in 2014.
“I have worked in tech ecosystems across the country and am proud to be from Raleigh/Durham,” said Mitsch. “We have an impressive tech and startup community and we’re incredibly excited to focus on building Momentum and continue to grow the Triangle as a premier place for talent.”
The Iron Yards ceased operations over the Summer and Momentum has taken over its Raleigh and Durham leases.
Momentum also plans to offer customized training for organizations, part-time courses for developers and free crash-courses for those new to the industry.
The company was founded this year and raised $375,000 in an equity offering in early November.
