CLOSE IT 2015: DEMAND MORE

Innovative Startups and High Demand Jobs

The Close It Summit: DEMAND MORE is building on the success of the 2014 Close It Summit: Jobs Madness. This year will elevate the continued need for significant changes in the traditional education to employment space and will have a strong focus on innovative startup solutions bringing a much-needed disruption to the training and hiring market.

startUP:MEETup

Last year we launched the $100,000 Jobs Madness competition. Close It 2015 premieres startUP:MEETup where fifty top startups will be showcasing their solutions for creating new pathways to employment that meet young adults (ages 16-29) and non-traditional learners where they are.

High Demand Jobs: DEMAND MORE

Those most impacted by these new innovations will be high demand industries struggling to find workers as well as the job seekers themselves, looking for increased access to economic opportunities and careers. These high demand industries include: IT, Manufacturing, Retail, Cyber Security, Restaurant & Hospitality, Healthcare and more.

Are you ready to demand more? Registration opens July 5th.
