Freedom through solidarity

Income Share Agreements

With Income Share Agreements, you can focus on your bootcamp at Ironhack Berlin, while CHANCEN eG takes care of your tuition fees. In exchange, you commit to affording future generations with the same opportunity. Once you start working in a company or found your own startup, you start making income based repayments to finance the training fees of future generations.

Bootcamp

Chancen eG takes care of your tuition fees so you can focus on your bootcamp.

Repayments

Contrary to regular loans, your repayments are made to the Chancen eG community and they are based on your income. You do not have a fixed amount of debt, but rather a repayment plan that is tailored to suit your individual financial capacity.

Income threshold

Repayments only start when you earn above the minimum threshold of 21.000 Euros Net. This ensures that the repayment plan is only activated when you can really afford it.

Capped

The repayment value is capped and reaches a maximum amount. A high income does not mean that the repayments are excessively high.

Ironhack voices about the ISA

  • Michael Land

    Michael Land

    General Manager


    “At Ironhack, we keep noticing that the financial situation is a determining factor in why people are denied access to training. This must change. We are happy to have Chancen eG as a partner who supports this approach with its sustainable financing model – the reverse generation contract. Our graduates usually gain a foothold in the tech industry very quickly and can concentrate fully on their professional development through the fair and income-dependent repayment model – without financial worries.”

An overview of our financial support

During your bootcamp, we take care of your tuition fees, partially or completely. When you graduate, income based repayments are made to Chancen eG over a 5 year period. Should your annual income be less than 21,000 Euros, repayments are not required. Your repayment is then shifted to a period when you earn above the minimum income threshold. Income is calculated after standard deductions of 21.2 % for employees and 37.0% for freelancers.

Your ISA

How does an ISA work?

The first step towards your future is the decision to complete a bootcamp at Ironhack Berlin. With the ISA you have the freedom to choose your desired degree, without worrying about the tuition fees.

As soon as you have been accepted for your bootcamp at Ironhack Berlin, you can simply apply for support from CHANCEN eG. Complete the application form and select a date for your interview. Should you be a suitable member for our solidarity community, we will offer you a contract. Please note that we do not require collateral or a guarantor.

You can completely focus on your bootcamp. With an ISA, your tuition fees are paid directly by CHANCEN eG to Ironhack Berlin. Once you have graduated, you can take your time in deciding what the next steps on your career path will be. Maybe you would like to travel or do an internship?

With your first annual income that exceeds 21.000 Euros, you start repayments to CHANCEN eG, set at a fixed percentage of your total income. To calculate your individual annual repayments, your annual tax return statements are disclosed to us. Should you take a sabbatical or choose to study further your repayments are put on hold until you can afford to pay them again.

Your repayments ensure future generations also have access to fair financing.

Your repayments are discontinued once you have reached the end of the repayment period, irrespective of the sum of money you have paid back. You are welcome to continue being a member of CHANCEN eG and engage in educational funding opportunities for future generations.
