Over dit evenement

Dear sir/madam, dear invitee,

We are delighted to invite you to the official opening of TechGroundWest. You are more than welcome on the 12th of December at 11.00 AM in the OBA at Osdorpplein 16, Amsterdam Nieuw-West.

What are TechGrounds?

TechGrounds are tech hubs that offer people in vulnerable neighbourhoods opportunities for a successful future in IT. People from the neighbourhood can learn programming, IT skills, and how to develop ideas for their own company or launch a career in cloud computing. Regardless of age, background, education, gender or competence. It offers an easily accessible opportunity to enter the tech world.

Opening TechGrounds West

Alderman Touria Meliani and Minister Sigrid Kaag will attend the festive opening of TechGroundWest, the first TechGrounds location in the Netherlands! Other locations will follow soon. Besides Amsterdam Nieuw-West, locations in Zaanstad, Rotterdam and other cities will open.

Presentation cooperation AWS re / Start x TechGrounds

We will also officially launch the Amazon Web Services (AWS) re / Start program in the Netherlands during the opening. This AWS re / Start program is provided in the Netherlands in collaboration with TechGrounds. Over a three month time we train people without a job to become Junior AWS Cloud Operations employees. After successful completion of the IT and professional skills training, we guide our candidates to launch a career in the cloud. Participating companies that have already expressed interest in hiring alumni from this program are Booking.com, PostNL, Randstad, HEMA, Mobiquity, Rabobank and Dept.

OBA & TechGrounds: together for Amsterdam Nieuw-West

Specifically for the opening of TechGrounds in New West, the public library of Amsterdam (OBA) has rebuilt its location at Osdorpplein. In a part of the new OBA Osdorp will be filled in by TechGrounds. With this there is more space for learning, working on language and digital skills, and meeting and developing yourself in ways that fit the 21st century. The OBA supports lifelong learning, by working together with partners such as TechGrounds, in the 021 Creation Centre. The growing Nieuw-West district has enormous potential, which both parties are keen to encourage with this collaboration.

As you are or will become an important partner of TechGrounds, and / or AWS re / Start, we invite you to be present at the official opening!

Hopefully we’ll see you on the 12th of December! Please RSVP

On behalf of the TechGrounds team
