Former Microsoft digital learning executive Ludovic Fourrage is looking to revolutionize how people achieve rewarding careers in software development with a new Bellevue startup called Nucamp, which officially launched Thursday, March 5.

Fourrage, along with co-founder Karim El Naggar, is looking to disrupt the EdTech space with its 22-week coding bootcamp for less than $2,000 — a marked shift from traditional coding bootcamps that typically cost between $10,000 and $20,000.

The company has been operating in soft launch mode, but it’s official launch marks an important achievement in accessibility and affordability for these high demand career sectors. Those that complete the bootcamp will be equipped with software development skills in web and mobile app platforms, without the necessity of an expensive degree or income sharing agreement.

Bellevue-based Nucamp opened its first coding bootcamp in Tacoma and has since experienced significant growth. In 2019, the company trained 700 students. That number skyrocketed to 7,000 students in 2020 across 25 cities, with continued expansion expected with the official open.
