Our Story


In the 1990's, Israel was a country in transition, transforming its economy from one based strictly on agriculture and manufacturing to the high-tech, "Start-Up Nation" we know today. Our founders, Gil Adani and Dan Vigdor recognized this change as a paradigm shift and boldly spearheaded a new educational model to upskill and reskill adult learners relatively quickly.
Drawing from the effective hands-on training Gil experienced in the Israeli Defense Forces, HackerU brought together the world's leading tech experts to instruct students in avant-garde IT, Design, and Data Science. Within a few years, HackerU was funneling market-ready professionals directly into the country’s booming economy.
At the same time, Israel started to receive electronic threats from abroad. Out of necessity, Israel had to maintain the strongest cybersecurity resilience and a major caveat was not having properly prepared cyber professionals.
Leadership at HackerU saw the opportunity and focused their efforts on filling the cyber gap. Within years, HackerU was honored as Israel's premier digital skills and cybersecurity training institute and stands true to this today.
We understand that in this rapidly-evolving digital economy the only way for HackerU to remain a leader in accelerated education is to stay ahead of the curve is to set the curve by developing its own technology.
Therefore, our advanced R&D and Solutions department, comprised of the brightest minds in tech, offers innovative cybersecurity solutions to businesses, making it the only organization servicing the high-tech industry and the education sector, simultaneously.
A powerhouse leader in the world-renowned Israeli Technology Ecosytem, HackerU is now active in over 12 countries and continues to shape the world’s global workforce.
