Description

By opening tech-hubs in the middle of Rotterdam areas, such as Rotterdam south, we are making tech belong to everyone. We provide cost free IT training courses to local talent to let them start a career in tech. At the same time we are offering the opportunity to employers to access a new talent pool and create diversity within their IT teams!
 

Reason to join:
TechGrounds Rotterdam is opening its doors this November! By providing free IT training courses to local talent we are activating a new talent pool and creating diversity within IT teams.

In our partner event we will discuss how we can best educate people from Rotterdam-South for them to start a career in tech and how we can help companies get more diversity in their IT teams.

We will announce our plans for TechGrounds Rotterdam and will start a brainstorm with the audience to gather your ideas about educating new talent and creating diversity in tech!
