Giganci Programowania has gained the funding of EUR 3.5 million from two VC funds. The first is a Hungarian fund Portfolion, which had previously invested in Novakid and CodeCool, to name a few. The second investor is the Polish fund Nunatak Capital, which specialises in the areas of Data Science and AI. It had earlier provided funding to startups such as LiveKid and Mindgram. We are pleased to inform you that we had the opportunity to represent the company in the transaction process.
Giganci Programowania is an international software development school, established in Poland, which offers courses for children and teenagers aged 7-19. The curriculum combines live group lessons, where students program in familiar environments, with interactive exercises. By now, Giganci Programowania has more than 120 stationary venues and offers online courses in the entire Poland, as well as in 14 other markets – on four continents.
The company is currently expanding overseas in 2 business models: through franchise branches in 12 markets (Croatia, Mexico, Australia, and the UAE, among others) and by developing its own branches in Spain and Chile, soon to be joined by the UK and Germany.
The founders: Sebastian Langa, Dawid Leśniakiewicz, Radosław Kulesza, and Piotr Pełka, have decided to raise a funding round to dynamically scale the business in the abovementioned foreign markets. The company’s immediate goal is to develop branches in Spain and Latin America and to enter the UK and German markets. Funding will also be used to develop the original LMS with innovative gamification or AI modules supporting education. In this way, Giganci Programowania will have a chance to become the world’s largest software development school for children and teenagers, the Polish EdTech, which will be associated with digital education on every continent.
