Neal Sales-Griffin

General Info

About

At CodeNow, Neal is teaching young people how to discover their passions through software. As a mixed-race low-income kid growing up on the Southside of Chicago, he struggled to find his place in society. But with determination and help from a supportive family, he earned acceptance into Northwestern University, where he served as student body president and started multiple businesses. After graduating, Neal discovered his passion for making software that helps people while working as an investor and entrepreneur in residence at a venture capital firm. Through this work, he realized the necessity of a technical skill set to be a successful business starter. He promptly abandoned his cushy post to devote himself to learning programming and design. After a year of full-time personal study and practice learning software development, he made it his mission to help others do the same. In 2011, he started The Starter League, one of the first coding bootcamps in the world. With this pioneering model, he’s helped thousands learn to solve meaningful problems with software. He believes we must provide the same opportunities that helped him succeed to as many kids as possible. He joined CodeNow as CEO to do just that.
