WhiteHat is a tech start-up on a mission to create a diverse group of future leaders by building an outstanding alternative to university through apprenticeships. Having recently raised $16m Series A venture round led by Index Ventures, with participation from Lightspeed Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures, we are on a rapid growth trajectory and have tripled the team to over 120 people in the past year. We want to build an iconic company that becomes one of the great European businesses of our generation.

We offer apprenticeships that genuinely rival the learning experience at elite universities through a combination of 1:1 coaching, cutting-edge tech, outstanding delivery and partnerships with world-class content providers.
