Rakel Solvadottir, Founder and CEO
reKode has developed a proprietary curriculum and specially designed tech centers to spark kids’ interest in the wonders of coding and technology. The platform teaches children from the age of six up how to code through a proven methodology developed by the company’s team of experts in psychology, teaching, and technology.
So yes, they’re educating the next generation of programmers.
“Coming from a little island called Iceland and entering the US market was a big step,” said reKode founder and CEO Rakel Solvadottir. “The Kaplan EdTech Accelerator has given us access to a network and the validation needed to succeed. We now have access to mentors with tremendous experience in the educational technology space, access to the knowledge that lies within Kaplan and Techstars, and lifetime support from all the other awesome teams in the program.
“As a female founder, being in NYC has made me realize how far Iceland has come, regarding gender equality. Iceland is ranked as the number one country to live in as a woman and it has actually been quite of a shock to see the difference between Iceland, Seattle (where I live now) and NYC. Being in NYC has confirmed my beliefs of how important it is to keep on developing a special reKode G!rls Academy to empower girls in Tech.”
