Restart Network

"The story of Restart Network – or how we turned education upside down to build a world class, tuition-free coding school for refugees."

Restart network recognised two societal and economic problems and found a way to connect them: how to facilitate the integration of refugees coming into Europe, and what to do about the lack of qualified IT professionals throughout the EU. Through crowdfunding Restart Network organized a three-month bootcamp for selected refugees, involving tech companies and building a network fort he partcipants, resulting in them becoming web developers ready for the job market.
