Traditional education and training have not ensured economic advancement for all learners and workers.
Educators, workforce professionals, and entrepreneurs have innovative solutions. But they need support developing them, proof that what they're doing works, and a connection to capital to help them succeed. Investors seek guidance in identifying high-impact opportunities and promising solutions that generate results for learners and workers, produce financial outcomes, and bolster the economy.
JFFLabs bridges these communities and drives innovation in education and workforce systems through market insights, incubating solutions, and investing in promising companies.
“One of the more intriguing things about JFFLabs is that it doesn’t assume Silicon Valley has all the answers.”
