Why We Created RED
Tech needs more talent, more innovation, and more inclusivity. Yet despite the demand, traditional models of post-secondary education are not preparing students for an industry that’s constantly changing. So we decided to do something about it.
RED is for people who want fulfilling, innovative, and important work. It’s for having creative freedom, for making connections, and for having a say in what happens next.
It’s for designing your tomorrow.
For The Future
Technology is a result of innovative minds and thought leaders who pushed the boundaries and broke the mould. That’s what we aim to do at RED.
It’s not just about what’s happening today, but what will happen a month, year, or decade from now. We provide students with the right skills needed for the digital economy so they can have a say in what happens next.
For The Community
Giving back is why we do what we do. It’s the basis of our curriculum, the foundation of our education model, and the reason we show up day in and day out. Why? Because it matters.
Design and technology has the power to drive social change. We feel a responsibility to ensure each RED graduate feels empowered to make a difference. That’s why we work with nonprofits, charities, and startups looking for support through our Community Partnership program.
RED was started by a committed team of tech and impact-focused entrepreneurs, with a mission to change the way think about education. There have never been more opportunities for young creators, designers, developers and entrepreneurs to design a better future, and to create a meaningful impact in the world.

A Changing Global Landscape
Simply put, we love tech and we love to teach. It’s one of the few industries where anything is possible. It moves at a pace that no other industry has seen before. What was relevant today may be forgotten tomorrow.
It’s challenging. It’s exciting. It’s rewarding. It’s exactly where we want to be.
