empowering the next generation digital professionals to create an impact for people, planet & profit

TTI in a nutshell

In 2015, the adventure began; The Talent Institute was born. 

We are part of the​“We Empower Innovators” ecosystem together with Startupbootcamp and corporate innovation facilitator Innoleaps.

We are located in B. Amsterdam. Occupying over 40,000 square meters across 3 buildings, it is the biggest start-up hub in Europe & focuses on creative workspaces for innovation, education, and growth.

this is who we are in just 45 seconds.


The world is changing faster than ever. This asks for digital marketers and innovators who stay ahead of the game.


The Talent Institute shapes the next generation of digital talent by providing them with the most in-demand skills, taught by leading industry experts to create sustainable value in this ever-changing world.


That’s why we create traineeships and expert programs in digital growth, innovation and design for young professionals looking for the next big step in their career. Let’s enjoy the ride!

hiring process

At The Talent Institute, we firmly believe that diverse teams perform better than monotonous teams. We aim for a 50/50 male-to-female split and people that identify themselves as any other than male or female are just as welcome. We also place great importance on diversity in backgrounds and cultures, thus we set a goal of having 11% of our employees identify as Non-Western, which is the same percentage at Dutch universities and higher education institutions. To minimize the chances of subjective hiring we partnered up with Equalture for our hiring process. This is a revolutionary game-based assessment technology, designed to remove subjectivity from start to hire.
