Apply for Horizons: Investing in Human Potential Pitch Competition

Too often, people are pitted against profits. What if we reimagined a power shift that is good for people but also good for the bottom line? 

The JFFLabs Insights and Incubation Unit and JFF’s investment arm, JFF Ventures, are building a future where innovative products and solutions give everyone increased access to learning, employment, and economic advancement opportunities. At Horizons, we aim to build on the diverse voices of workers, investors, and educators to create an approach that focuses on the workers and learners directly impacted by social impact investments. 
This year, JFF is launching an “Investing in Human Potential” pitch competition at Horizons on June 14, 2023. If you are an early-stage, tech pre-seed startup focusing on adult learning solutions, you are invited to apply to compete at our pitch competition for a $10,000 cash prize. Startups chosen will also receive a scholarship to attend Horizons upon selection and will have an opportunity to meet potential investors from the JFF Ventures team. In addition, the winner of the pitch competition will be considered for the JFFLabs Impact Accelerator. The application closes on April 10, 2023 at 8:00 AM ET.  

This pitch competition is centered on learning solutions that increase economic advancement for learners and workers who have been overlooked or excluded. Your five-minute pitch will answer this question: “How are you centering human potential in your education and workforce designs?”
