Up-Skilling, Re-Skilling, & Future-Proofing
We are working to shift the labor market toward an inclusive economy and future of work. With SmartJob, we support start-ups which give workers the skills they need to compete in the 21st century global economy. We are working to fill the widening skills gap and support disability-diverse talent pipelines into emerging industries.
Workers with disabilities know what they need to find, obtain, and thrive in employment, and when they can’t find solutions in the open market, they often invent them themselves. Yet, until now, disability-led innovators have often lacked access to the early-stage capital necessary to launch and deploy their work-related innovations. With SmartJob, we work to seed, scale, and support innovative technologies that maximize global human talent.
Accelerators & Incubators
SmartJob supports accelerators and incubators to find and fund the strongest disability-led employment solutions in the world.
Join us in unleashing unrealized global talent, by backing the programs that will support the next generation of breakthrough founders and disability-led solutions.
Seeding Underrepresented Founders
Groundbreaking ideas come from people of all backgrounds, but unequal access to wealth and social capital mean many truly transcendent ideas are never realized. We can change this by investing in and supporting early-stage companies, across sectors, led by underrepresented founders with disabilities to build a more inclusive workforce and generate wealth for people with disabilities.
