The Employment Technology Fund Launch: An Introduction And Discussion
How can we harness the power of impact investing and go beyond traditional grant making to close the employment opportunity gap? This session will focus on how four leading foundations joined together to create a pioneering investment vehicle that supports both for-profit and non-profit entities seeking to scale Innovative Employment Technologies. The Fund seeks to highlight the potential of technology in scaling workforce development efforts and lay the groundwork for future collaborations in the field. We want this session to be more than just a one-way dialogue – we want to hear from you. Please join us for a robust Q & A after a short presentation. Organizations seeking information about investing in the Fund, as well as companies that might be candidates for funding are encouraged to attend.
