Code education startup Thinkful raises $4.25M
- Thinkful, an online coding education startup backed by PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, announced Tuesday that it raised $4.25 million in a Series A funding round.
- The round was led by Floodgate Fund with participation from RRE Ventures and Quotidian Ventures.
- Additionally, Floodgate founding partner Ann Miura-Ko will join Thinkful's board.
This funding round further highlights the amount of attention being placed on coding education and startups that address that skills gap. With this latest round, Thinkful has so far raised a total of $5.25 million. If Peter Thiel's backing wasn't enough, the addition of Ko — who EdSurge notes was once dubbed "the most powerful woman in startups" by Forbes — to its board should put some additional attention on the startup.
