The beginning

In 2004, VadimGontsov, together with partners, implemented the non-profit, which allows young entrepreneurs with no experience to create their own companies. To date, more than 130 startups have been created that have attracted more than $ 300 million in investment. Vadim Gontsov’s life credo: “If you want to be - be!”, which he conveyed to his students and followers along with experience.


“When we first created DevEducation, we were very worried, because the community traditionally helps older people. But this time, our goal was precisely the younger generation. We wanted to show them new opportunities and open new horizons. The goal of DevEducation is to support the young generation and help them find their place in life, ”- YakovLivshits.


According to the director of the Dnieper Jewish community Zelig Brez, DevEducation will become the basis for professional training of a whole generation of young people. Like LDS (the Society for the Distribution of Labor), created more than 100 years ago, DevEducation is designed to educate people in decent professions for decent earnings. Society is strong when the majority in it have a high income and the opportunity to provide a decent life for themselves and their children.

About school

IT-school DevEducation is a non-profit educational project created in 2017 on the basis of the Dnieper Jewish community and LDS (labor distribution society) "Training and Employment" at the initiative of the American businessman Yakov Livshits.

Over the first year of work, the Training and Employment program has graduated over 250 graduates, more than 90% of whom were immediately employed in the IT field.
