Hyper Island’s Partnership With Talent Garden

Vinge has advised Hyper Island on the deal. Morris Law advised Talent Garden.

Hyper Island, the disruptive education provider and facilitator of learning experiences, announced its new partnership with Italian co-workspace and digital education company Talent Garden.

With Talent Garden becoming the majority owner of Hyper Island, the partnership will focus on the digital skills gap that dominates the global labour market. The companies will build on the success of their own respected operations and jointly create programs and courses across Europe.

Hyper Island emerged in the 90s as a school of excellence in the emerging world of UX and games design and has gone on to produce an enormous range of talent, which is routinely hoovered-up by the biggest tech players.

For instance, Talent Garden offers myriad business training courses for the digital world, processing around 20,000 students a year. Likewise, Hyper Island has traditionally been best known for its online education, but with Talent Garden, that inline component will no doubt be expanded. Talent Garden also has 20 campuses across Europe.

Vinge’s team mainly consisted of Johan Larsson (Picture), Ulrich Ziche, Robin Fagerström and Nathalie Hugues.

Morris Law’s team mainly consisted of Carl Friberg and Gustav Thorslund.
