Hyperion is a social enterprise, with a mission to bring scaleable Computer Science and software development education to the developing world. We believe this education is uniquely empowering - no skill can more rapidly empower individuals to gain access to well-paying careers, yet no skill is as hard to learn in the third world. In Africa alone, over 200 million low-income youth can harness the skills we teach to change their lives forever.
Hyperion sells courses to high-income demographics, pairing students with excellent one-on-one online mentors, and uses a portion of all profits to provide free online courses to low-income demographics in Africa.
By charging only 15% of our students, we can provide free education to the remaining 85%, generating a sustainable social impact.
