Arlene Mulder: My African Coding Training Company Is Disrupting An Outdated Education System

Arlene Mulder started her business journey as a banker, working at one of the largest banks in the southern hemisphere. A natural coder herself, Arlene saw the gap in coding skills in the developing world and decided to fill it with her coding startup, We Think Code_. Together with her co-founder, Arlene has created one of the most disruptive businesses in Africa. Upending the traditional route to becoming a developer, We Think Code_ has already trained hundreds of coders in its short existence - and Arlene's team plans to train hundreds of thousands more. Find out how Arlene created one of the most explosive African startups in this fascinating video of Arlene's talk on the Heavy Chef stage in May 2018, in Cape Town.
