Challenges sparked by the converging crises of the environment, social equity, and the future of work, have created opportunities to create impact and business outcomes at scale.

For innovative solutions like ChargerHelp!, this is a unique opportunity to build an inclusive green economy by training and upskilling low-income workers, and connecting them to career opportunities in an industry that also improves public health.

In an article published on TechCrunch, ETF@JFFLabs announced it will join a $2.75 million investment in ChargerHelp! to expand its regional-based cohort talent model in partnership with local workforce boards.

ETF@JFFLabs is honored to join a group of great investors in helping ChargerHelp scale, and is impressed by the team’s strong vision for growth, their drive, and their commitment to the communities they serve. We are excited to welcome ChargerHelp to our portfolio, and for the company to leverage our national workforce development networks to help them source and secure technicians as they grow across the country.
