Jeremy Rossmann, co-founder of Make School, a computer science and software engineering school, based in San Francisco is disrupting higher education.

Make School offers a two-year Bachelor’s Degree to students accepted into its computer science program.

Rossmann founded Make School in 2012 with his high school friend, Ashu Desai. Rossmann dropped out of MIT and Desai dropped out of UCLA to create Make School.

Make School is disrupting higher education. Make School only gets paid when its students land a job after graduation making $60,000 a year or more. Many of its students make far more than that. They have landed jobs at Facebook, Google, Tesla, Amazon and more. Rossman was in Austin to speak at SXSWEdu about “Rethinking College to Diversify the Tech Workforce.” Make School seeks to educate a diverse and underrepresented student population, Rossmann said. Forty-five percent of its students are Latino or Black, he said. It also does not admit students solely based on grades and SAT Scores, Rossmann said. It takes a student’s work history, and family obligations into consideration too, he said.

Following his discussion at SXSWEdu, Rossmann spoke with Silicon Hills News for its Ideas to Invoices podcast.

Make School, a B-Corp startup, has raised $10 million to date from
Y Combinator, Tim Draper, East Ventures, and other investors.
