New Apprenticeship, a San Antonio, TX-based digital apprenticeship solution bridging the tech skills and opportunity gap, closed a $2.5M seed funding round. The round was led by ECMC Group’s Education Impact Fund, with participation from the Dell Foundation, Michelson 20MM Foundation, Learnstart, and others.
“We believe apprenticeship equips employers to become the engines of digital talent production. Forward-thinking companies partner with us to build sustainable talent pipelines, fueling their short and long-term talent needs. Modern degree apprenticeships represent the greatest breakthrough in workforce innovation because they create accessible pathways for students to pursue high-value careers without requiring access to costly 4-year universities.” said Brad Voeller, CEO, New Apprenticeship.
New Apprenticeship partners with employers nationally to transform lives by bridging the gap between what schools teach and only experience can bring. The company has extensive partnerships helping companies, channel partners and apprentices explore new pathways to better diversify, promote equity and inclusion, and integrate fully scalable apprenticeships for the workforce of the future.
The company intends to use the funds to build out its management team and make investments in sales operations and technology.
