New technologies are constantly on the horizon and digitalization will be a source and driver of transformational change across all industries. To prepare all workers and learners to develop the emerging skills and experiences that will help them succeed in this landscape, Jobs for the Future (JFF) has partnered with Cognizant Foundation to launch a new cohort of entrepreneurs focused on developing innovative ways for people to enter and succeed in technology careers.

This latest cohort of entrepreneurs is rethinking accessibility and inclusion, and finding unique ways for people from all backgrounds to build skills and connect with career opportunities.
