CodeX Academy closes on $10 million to expand its tuition financing program for software developers


CodeX Academy ("CodeX") today announced the close of $10 million in growth financing to drive the expansion of their tuition financing programs. The Tennessee-based company leverages scalable technology and a practitioner-designed curriculum to train software developers, an occupation slated to grow rapidly over the next decade. CodeX plans to increase access to their program through the use of Income Share Agreements, which will be available to students as a result of this capital infusion. These incentive-aligned financing products demonstrate the innovative ethos at CodeX and dedication to delivering exceptional student outcomes.


CodeX has partnered with Leif, the Tuition Finance Management Platform. Leif works with industry leading education providers who deliver exceptional outcomes to students across a variety of fields and arranged the financing for CodeX. Leif's outcomes-aligned tuition financing solutions include Income Share Agreements which help education providers maximize their program's growth and impact potential.
