As a Captain of the Danish army he served as recovery officer in Iraq – as a recovery. He pioneered a recovery project with the allied forces, bringing internet and e-learning to the citizens of the region in which he was stationed.
The project was a massive success and inspired him to eventually create CodersTrust – supported by Danida – with a vision to democratize access to education via the internet on a global scale.
We believe in a borderless world with equal opportunities for everyone. We believe student finance and the freelance market will make this happen. Currently, paid education and equal opportunities is limited to people that are born in certain countries whereas millions of people in developing countries are denied access to education. With CodersTrust — paid education is made available, if you have access to the internet. We believe that investing in the education of our youth is something everyone will benefit from. The freelance market will have more qualified workers, our students will increase their earnings, and CodersTrust will make money to expand the service to more people.
Nearly every aspect of life has been changed by the Internet. However, this revolution has not made any significant impact for people at the bottom of the pyramid. CodersTrust is based on the basic premise that there is already an online labor market and several online learning portals, but what is missing is a financial system to fund the education of the labor force of tomorrow. We’re building such a system that can have a truly powerful impact for the poor. Not only is the brainpower of millions of people currently being wasted, but with the extreme inequality in the world it is simply a revolution just waiting to happen.
