HackerYou is a school based in Canada centered around coding workshops and it recently announced that it will be the first Canadian school offering Income Share Agreements.
This offers its students a new approach towards funding their education. Instead of paying the $12,000 tuition right away, HackerYou gives them the option to pay a percentage of their income after they are hired full-time and making at least an annual salary of $50,000. This system is designed to decrease the amount of risk during the transition from student to building one's career. How it works starts with a loonie and once a student s earning the minimum salary of $50,000, they begin paying 17% of their income each month for 24 months.
