About

Education

The tech ecosystem of Rotterdam relies heavily on knowledge and expertise in tech domains. The current knowledge gap in technological domains calls for an improved education system with a stronger focus on technology.

Courses and Programs

In order to attract and educate both local and international tech-savvy talent, we work together with educational institutions in order to facilitate high-level courses around tech topics.

Knowledge exchange

We also facilitate the exchange between employers, educational and governmental institutions to join forces and collaborate in shaping the future of tech education.

Reporting

Our bi-annual reports help inform you about the current state of tech education. These reports also serve to measure the progress made by educational institutions to close the current technological knowledge gap.

Entrepreneurship

Startups, scaleups and corporate entrepreneurship are at the heart of any tech ecosystem. WeTech identifies these stakeholders as the main drivers of innovation and disruption, and connects these companies not only to one another, but also to talent and investors.
