Miami, Fla. – Carlton Fields technology attorneys advised Wyncode Academy, a leading coding and user experience (UX) design bootcamp in Florida, in its recent acquisition by BrainStation, a global leader in digital skills training. Carlton Fields Miami attorneys Matthew E. Kohen and Adam T. Smith represented Wyncode in the deal. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 2014 by Johanna and Juha Mikkola, Wyncode Academy has graduated nearly 1,000 students while establishing itself as the premier provider of digital skills training in Florida. It was the first coding bootcamp to be licensed by the Florida Department of Education’s Commission for Independent Education and has won numerous industry awards.

“Wyncode has long been an integral part of Miami’s thriving tech ecosystem, and we look forward to seeing our client continue to build upon their disruptive education model and commitment to transforming individuals into technologists as part of BrainStation,” Kohen said.

Added Smith, “Wyncode has been a terrific Miami tech story from its beginning and exemplifies the incredible founders we have here in the South Florida ecosystem. BrainStation’s acquisition of Wyncode further validates the rise of Miami as a world-class tech hub and benefits our burgeoning tech industry and the local economy as a whole.”

According to BrainStation’s press release, Wyncode’s CEO Johanna Mikkola will join BrainStation’s leadership team upon closing. Mikkola said, “We couldn’t be more excited to become part of BrainStation’s global mission. Seven years ago, we set out to solve Miami’s tech talent gap and reinvent how digital skills were learned in the Miami community. Becoming a part of BrainStation is a transformational next step. It will allow us to have a greater impact and reach more learners than ever before as well as support the community through job creation and tech talent development.”
