Jonathan Cornelissen: Data Camp and Angel Activism

Jonathan Cornelissen is a philanthropist and company founder, but before finding his footing in his industry he was just a kid with a love for math. His parent say that he always loved it and it’s no surprise he ended up attending Sint-Albertus College for Greek Math in 1998. Jonathan Cornelissen worked hard at his academics and achieved his degree in 2004. Later he would simultaneously attend two different colleges between 2004 and 2009 one of which was the result of the Erasmus Exchange Program he had in which he had enrolled. 

Immediately after achieving his awards, Jonathan Cornelissen went on to co-found a project in Belgium that would be recognized as the first non-profit online private tutoring service ever offered. It was named Sagio.be and today he remains a board member for this company. Jonathan Cornelissen decided to advance his skill set and enroll in a three month course for developing at the Code Academy (LinkedIn). 

A year after he founded his first company, Jonathan Cornelissen co-founded Data Camp in New York. In fact, he was the company’s first CEO. He helped the company acquire a large amount of their students and subscribers. Today Data Camp is doubling its revenue every year since being founded in 2013, and Cornelissen still has a heavy hand in the company’s operations. However, he does partake in his own philanthropic endeavors such as working as an Angel Activist for several different brands. He is also always looking out for new innovative company ideas. 

Currently, Cornelissen is CEO at DataCamp and is still very interested in entrepreneurship and management in other sectors since seeing the amazing growth he was able to bring to Data Camp, however his greatest joys right now are his philanthropic efforts and informing young investors about what he’s learned through his blog posts online. Since Cornelissen has a love for the creation of new things, entrepreneurship and a natural thirst for knowledge it is more than likely we will see more from him. Hopefully very soon.
