Hive is a new kind of coding school in Helsinki, based on the revolutionary education model of the French school Ecole 42.
Founded in 2013 by tech entrepreneur and visionary Xavier Niel, 42 disrupted education by building a school without the traditional teacher-student model, focusing on peer-to-peer collaboration, problem-solving and creativity. The impressive results (100% of graduates well-employed, 50% of which had no coding experience) have inspired others around the world to replicate the model with success. In July 2019, we opened our doors in Finland and were the first school of our kind in the Nordics.
The word “Hive” literally means “a place in which people are busily occupied”. To us, Hive means the beginning of a community, a movement that is bigger than a school. We want to be a place where young people of all walks of life come together to collaborate, create great things and have an impact.
