Rob Johnson, Managing Director of Techstars Berlin & Cofounder of Makers Academy
After successfully completing his MBA in the Finance sector at Northern Michigan University and participating in a wide range of interesting projects, Rob Johnson cofounded Makers Academy in 2012 and grew it into Europe's largest coding bootcamp. Makers Academy - an intensive program to teach non-programmers everything they need to know to get a position in a world-class technology company - was recently ranked by the Guardian as the #1 place to learn to code in UK.
Moving out of the day-to-day operations of Makers Academy, Rob accepted a role as a Managing Director for Techstars in Berlin - one of the top global startup accelerating ecosystems that work hand in hand with highly influential corporate partners who offer mentorship and multiple business development opportunities. Techstars also invests into technology oriented companies themselves.
