Code Ninjas, the world’s largest children’s coding franchise, has opened a new UK headquarters. Fronted by Head of UK Development, Diane Vesey, business owners from around the country can now meet with the UK support team at the head office in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
Founded in 2016, Code Ninjas is a fast-growing kids coding franchise. At Code Ninjas centres, kids learn to code while building their own video games. They gain problem solving, critical thinking, and STEM skills in a fun, safe, and inspiring environment.
Code Ninjas extraordinary success since landing on UK shores is causing waves in both the business and technology industries, as more prospects invest in their own children’s coding centres. With ten locations now planned to launch across the south of England in the coming months, British entrepreneurs continue to capitalise on the demand for kids coding education.
Diane said: “Demand for the Code Ninjas model here in the UK has increased so rapidly that it was crucial for us to open a centralised hub. This is where I and the rest of the UK team will be based – when we’re not out on the road.”
The launch of the UK head office was formally announced at the third UK Discovery Day on the 11th November, by David Graham – founder and CEO – and other representatives from the US. David and his team introduced the Code Ninjas business opportunity and vision for the future, before attendees were welcomed to ask questions about the model.
Amongst the crowd were husband and wife team, Girish Betadpur and Divya Vajapeyam, who have recently invested in a Code Ninjas centre, which will be based near their home in Milton Keynes. They were inspired to join the kids coding brand after their own daughter expressed an interest in learning to code.
“Both Divya and I come from a technology background, so we’re more than aware of the need for the next generation to have an understanding of coding. I’d actually been teaching Aadya, our 11-year-old daughter, the basics of coding language when I came across the Code Ninjas business opportunity.
“Having recently just sold my own technology firm, the timing was perfect for me to invest in the model. Our long-term goal is to establish the Code Ninjas programme across Buckingham and open other centres, with our Milton Keynes centre as our flagship. I think what Code Ninjas are doing for the landscape of kids coding education is pretty remarkable and we’re incredibly excited to be part of the team,” said Girish.
