Corinne Vigreux

Chairperson
More info
As a tech entrepreneur, I am acutely aware of the shortage of good software engineers and digital visionaries. Through the work my foundation has done on improving social mobility over the past 10 years, I've come across so much untapped talent. Codam is bringing the two together. The school will be a home to a diverse community of students learning together the skills that will prepare them for the future of work and secure them employment anywhere in the world. They will be able to join a company with a cause and a culture they share, or start their own!

Amsterdam has been a centre of technology-driven innovation and collaboration for centuries – from the Golden Age to recent times with the influx of disruptive start-ups. It’s therefore only right for Codam to open its doors here, nurturing a new pool of motivated and diverse coding talent critical to the success of technology companies like TomTom. Codam’s ethos around peer-to-peer learning sets students up with the right skillset for success in a professional environment.
