To this day, Le Wagon has a community of over 3,000 graduate students. The alumni have founded their own companies (including the creation of over 100 start-ups) and raised funds (over three million Euros of seed capital were raised), other have progressed in their careers and found positions as Web Developer, Product Owner, CTO, etc.
