Freedom Through Solidarity

Income Share Agreement

With an Income Share Agreement, you can focus on your bootcamp at Hamburg Coding School, 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.

Study

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 27.000 Euros gross. 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.

Hamburg Coding School voices about the ISA

  • Teresa Holfeld

    “High quality training has its price. We hate seeing promising candidates not pursuing their plans to switch careers because they just can’t afford it. Chancen eG gives us a really valuable gift with the Income Share Agreement — a financing model that removes this obstacle and allows these promising candidates to get their coding education with us, independently of their current income.”

An Overview of our Financial Support

During your studies, 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 27,000 euros of relevant income, your repayment is suspended and postponed. The relevant income is the positive income (gross) reduced by income-related expenses. The flat-rate deduction for self-employed persons is 16.4%.

Your ISA

How does an ISA work?

The first step towards your future is the decision to complete a Bootcamp at Hamburg Coding School. 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 Hamburg Coding School, 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 Hamburg Coding School. 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 27.000 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.

Financing your living expenses

To support you in the best possible way in making sure that you don’t have to worry about your finances during your Bootcamp, we also offer the financing of living expenses.
