Skills Fund Partner Spotlight: Hack Reactor

Hack Reactor was founded in 2012 by brothers Marcus and Tony Phillips to provide students a life-altering educational experience with an outcomes-focused approach. In addition to the original San Fransisco-based Hack Reactor campus, they have now unified their network of schools, including Telegraph Academy and MakerSquare, all under the prestigious Hack Reactor brand.

Recognizing the shared values, curriculum and quality throughout every location and program in the network, the schools will now be rebranded as Hack Reactor Austin, Hack Reactor Los Angeles, Hack Reactor San Francisco, Hack Reactor New York City, and Hack Reactor Remote - all of which Skills Fund has performed due diligence on and will finance student's educational journey.

The Hack Reactor Software Engineering program is focused on building autonomous, fully capable software engineers. By the end of the program, you will be an autonomous engineer, capable of tackling unique, unfamiliar problems and building complex applications.

Telegraph Academy’s curriculum has been integrated into Hack Reactor’s immersive programs as the “The Telegraph Track,” a pilot program providing additional mentorship, career counseling and community support to underrepresented groups in tech, including women, people of color and members of the LGBTQ community.

Beginning January 2017, Hack Reactor will distribute more than $1.3 million in scholarship funding over two years that is entirely funded by Hack Reactor itself, and at least 50 percent of the seats awarded will be dedicated to prospective students from underrepresented groups,
