Ask any company in Amsterdam and they’ll tell you tech talent is hard to come by these days. On the other hand, there’s a plethora of academies, courses, talent initiatives and schools to provide that talent in and around the city. However, these two sides often struggle to find each other. That’s where TOMAS comes in. The newly launched initiative for the Amsterdam tech sector aims to close the talent gap.
TOMAS launched to match and select
TOMAS launched this week as an initiative of StartupAmsterdam, the Amsterdam Economic Board, Metropool Regio Amsterdam, HvA-Digital Society School and the municipality. The website serves as a platform where companies looking for talent can connect with talent initiatives and vice versa. Companies can browse through an interactive catalogue of over 120 talent initiatives in the area to find a matching partner. The catchy name is not randomly chosen, it’s short for Talent Ontwikkeling (development), Match and Select.
