August 27th, 2020
CodeBoxx is very proud to celebrate its second anniversary today! Yes, already 2 years you might say, but it was 2 exceptional years! In just 2 years, CodeBoxx and its team’s list of accomplishments is frankly impressive. Not only has the ultra-accelerated technology program established itself as a proven solution to the problem of labor shortage in the tech industry, but CodeBoxx’s Digital Workshop, often a little less known to the general public, presents phenomenal figures! CodeBoxx’s Digital Workshop effectively reached the magic number of $ 1 million in contracts and projects at the end of 2019, while 6 months later, this figure rose to 2 million. When we know that the vast majority of young companies will never reach this level of income in all their years of operation, it is even more spectacular! All of this makes CodeBoxx one of the best kept secrets in America and here are some facts and statistics to prove it.
Accelerated Technology Program
- Nearly 100 graduates
- Starting salary for graduates ranging between $ 42,000 and $ 67,000
- 56% of graduates had no previous programming experience before CodeBoxx
- 69% of graduates have no university experience
- 74% of graduates are aged 16 to 35
- 8 major partners
- 2 campuses in Canada
- An aggressive expansion plan for North America and a 1st US campus in Tampa Bay in 2021
CodeBoxx’s Digital Workshop
- More than 30 clients and / or contracts completed or in progress
- Over $ 2 million in revenue
- More than 30 developers who continue their skills development supervised by a team of experienced seniors
- Major role as exclusive IT supplier for Lucky Brand, a company that participated in one of the fastest exits from bankruptcy in US history
