Mr. Aldo de Pape

Position: Founder, TeachPitch
Country: Belgium

Aldo de Pape founded TeachPitch in 2014 with the goal of building a platform for teachers and schools to find, post, and share lesson plans, course materials, teaching strategies, and more.

The inspiration for TeachPitch came from de Pape’s own experience of teaching English, Dutch, and Economics to high school students with special needs.TeachPitch was deliberately conceived as a global community, inspired by de Pape’s years of working with teachers across the world through the education charity As We Grow. Despite their cultural differences, de Pape discovered that teachers around the world shared common goals and had common needs. By building a global community, TeachPitch is helping provide fresh insights and a broader perspective to all of its users. Previously, De Pape worked for a corporate venture capital fund Digital Science and is also the author of a children’s book ‘I Am!’
