Foundry College, a San Francisco, CA-based online two-year college designed to educate working adults to fill middle-skills jobs, raised $6m in funding.
Learn Capital made the investment.
The company is launching its first class beginning in January 2019.
Founded in 2018 by Dr. Stephen M. Kosslyn, former Dean of Social Science at Harvard University and former Chief Academic Officer at the Minerva Schools at KGI, Foundry College works closely with employers and organizations to ensure that the skills and knowledge taught to students will be immediately relevant to their jobs.
The curriculum integrates practical training with a broad education so students can adapt as the labor market changes.
Every class combines live, instructor-led lectures with small group active learning sessions to ensure that new knowledge is effectively integrated, retained, and can be put into immediate practice.
