After opening campuses in Lille, Laval, and Paris, Holberton School France opened its doors in downtown Toulouse. With the city mayor and the vice president of the Occitanie Region in attendance, Holberton School France inaugurated its fourth campus on June 20, 2022.
The event, hosted by Toulouse Campus Director Stéphanie Metche-Serpault and Bizness CEO Bruno Sola, was the perfect occasion to tour the building, learn more about the school’s programs, and meet with staff, investors, and other teams of the French campus.
During this event, C#18 students (Holberton School Toulouse’s first cohort) had the opportunity to build their professional network by meeting representatives of Capgemini Engineering and other local tech companies.
Holberton students were intimately involved in the event’s organization and showed off their learning and coding skills by introducing guests to live coding sessions.
“Bizness partners with Holberton School not only to leverage the best digital expertise but also to benefit from a highly successful soft-skills program, which will ensure the success of our students and companies.” —Bruno Sola, Founder, and CEO of Bizness and a major investor in Holberton School France.
Dedicated to helping local companies hire the well-trained, qualified workforce they need, Holberton School Toulouse relies on its strong partnership with the Région Occitanie Pyrénées Méditerranée to ensure the long-term development of the school and to reach out to future students.
This partnership is already well established. The first 40 Holbies benefit from financial support—up to 54% of school costs—to follow a complete program. This is an opportunity not to be missed, and only a few spaces are left.
“More and more tech companies are popping up in the Toulouse French tech environment. To support the growing entrepreneurial dynamic around tech in Occitania, we want to do our best on both sides: to ease the recruitment tensions that companies are facing and to train the digital talent of tomorrow.” —Stephanie Metche-Serpault, Toulouse Campus Director
