Alexandra Clare carved her name as the winner of 2024 Great Companies International Women Entrepreneur in Tech category.



The Co-Founder of Re:code Alexandra Clare is an Alumni of NewYork University. It is quite

fascinating how she decided on developing Re:code, an online nonprofit platform for students

to learn coding and help them get employed. She is an international lawyer and after

graduation her plan was to move to Geneva and work in Humanitarian Diplomacy for the

International committee of the Red Cross. Nevertheless ,while doing her Masters she

travelled to Iraq there she witnessed millions of Iraqis evading Mosul in the Wake of ISIS.

Only 3% of youth had access to education, while employment and placement opportunities

were scarce. She interviewed 400 youth candidates to understand what skills they dreamed to learn and found technology as a common answer from here the idea of Re:code started to

form.


Re:code trains and prepare conflict-affected younsters how to code through enticing boot

camps and create pathways for economic opportunity by providing apprencticeship and job

placements in the tech industry. Re:code started with operating two countries and gradually

are expanding with their motto to empower next generation leaders.Through this amazing

plarform they are continuously tens of thousands of people from under-represented

Tarkan Mansuroğlu Frontend Bootcamp, Türkiye. Re:code believes that everyone has
