Helping college students successfully study CS and land their first…

Edlyft, backed by Kleiner Perkins, Kapor Capital, and YC, makes it easy for students to learn in demand computer science skills at their university, and for companies to grow their technical talent pipeline. Through a platform of study tools and cohort support, Edlyft helps students across the world go from their first CS course to becoming an engineer. In 2022, Edlyft successfully pivoted to enterprise, 10-xing revenue from 2021 and bringing on partners like Netflix, LinkedIn, Dropbox, Google, and more. Co-founders, Erika & Arnelle (Yale & Stanford CS grads, ex-Facebook & ex-Google), believe everyone deserves access to economic opportunity and has the ability to learn in-demand skills with the right support. Featured in Forbes, Business Insider, TechCrunch, EdSurge and Y Combinator, they’ve built an edtech startup that will close the massive tech talent gap and increase access to in-demand fields. Before Edlyft, Arnelle worked as an engineer at Google and a consultant at Bain; while Erika worked as an engineer at Facebook and a product manager at LinkedIn Learning.
