Founder & CEO, Jim Giam
Jim is a strong believer in lifelong learning, innovation and adapting with the times. As he was running his digital agency, FirstCom Solutions — Jim noticed that many local businesses were facing a digital tech skills and knowledge gap that resulted in them being unable to digitalise their businesses effectively even with the help of go-digital agencies.
With the establishment of FirstCom Academy in 2017, Jim envisions to equip all Singaporeans as well as employees of local businesses with essential and in-demand digital tech skills to close up the skills and knowledge gap, which will propel Singapore’s economy and employment market toward a better future.
