Village Capital aims to rethink skills training to match job needs

Village Capital is focusing on workforce readiness in its next entrepreneur cohort.

“The mismatch between jobs and skills in the United States can be staggering,” writes Vilcap’s Ebony Pope.

Nearly all employers are unhappy with applicants and new hires, while nearly half of American workers say they’re underemployed and three out of four aren’t using their training and degrees.

The Vilcap program, a partnership with the Lumina Foundation, is looking for ventures that rethink skills training and matchmaking between job candidates and employers.

Two companies will get $75,000 investments. Applications run through April 10.
