Our Impact

Commercial Impact

Over $50 million in savings from reduced IT fixed operating expenses as a result of having more cloud infrastructure engineers to implement and manage automated deployment pipelines and elastic infrastructure.

 

Socio-Economic Impact

After 6 months of free training, Kura graduates earn an average starting salary of $100,000 despite coming from households of $30,000 annual income.

This has resulted in over $12 million in new wages in less than 18 months. Imagine what we can do for both industry and our most vulnerable communities from Appalachia to Detroit and the Mississippi Delta over the next 10 years after training millions of cloud engineers for the 21st century economy.

“While being trained primarily on AWS, we are impressed by how quickly our Kura engineers learned and adapted to Azure as a result of their solid foundational training in solution-design regardless of the tools and platforms that may be available.”
