EXPLORE Accelerator Income Share Agreement

Learn now. Pay when you’re hired.

Access to unleash your data career

EXPLORE’s Accelerator Income Share Agreement (ISA) means you learn for and only pay when you’re hired.

The EXPLORE Income Share Agreement (ISA) is a version of tuition fee postponement. Simply put, you learn Data Science or Data Engineering for free with EXPLORE for 12 months. Then, when you’re hired and earning more than $24 000, you pay us 15% of your gross income each month until you’ve paid $10 000.

The Accelerator ISA is capped at $10 000 - you’ll never pay more than that.

And if you don't get hired within 5 years? You never pay.

Our goal is to place you in a high paying, dollar-based role doing awesome data related work. We only make money when you do. Win-win.

How the EXPLORE Accelerator Income Share Agreement (ISA) works:

Once you start earning at least $24 000 a year, you will owe EXPLORE 15% of your gross monthly income until you reach the payment cap, or the terms of the ISA expire

An EXPLORE learner making $24 000 a year, earns $2000 a month and would pay EXPLORE $300 every month.

You would not be required to make ISA payments during months when your income was below $2000.

After fewer than 36 payments you will have paid the tuition cap of $10 000.

If you don't land a job earning the required salary within 60 months, you never have to pay!
