Code Ninjas opens UK head office

US-based children’s coding centre operator Code Ninjas has opened a UK head office in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, following the launch of its first two UK franchises in September.
Head of UK development Diane Vesey 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, supporting business owners in-centre. This is a really exciting time for the Code Ninjas network as our UK presence continues to grow. I’m looking forward to welcoming centre owners and prospects to our new head office.”
Last month Code Ninjas hosted a discovery day in central London attended by more than 60 entrepreneurs. Among the crowd were husband and wife team, Girish Betadpur and Divya Vajapeyam, who recently invested in a Code Ninjas centre, which will be based near their home in Milton Keynes.
Girish said: “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.”
