SPEAKER VAL2018

CLAUDE TEROSIER
CEO & FOUNDER MAGIC MAKERS

 

The “digital divide” is what separates our grandparents (among others…) from Snapchat. That’s for sure. But it is also the obstacle that stands in the way of people, of all ages, who aren’t lucky enough to have access to new technologies. In particular, there is the gap between those who know how to code, and those who don’t. Claude Terosier is convinced that autonomy and personal liberty are concepts we learn very early; today they involve giving children power over technology. That’s why this engineer from Telecom ParisTech created Magic Makers, a startup that offers coding workshops to children — to give them creative programming tools and to allow them to fearlessly step into the digital world of tomorrow.
