A company with a cloud-based application that connects students to prospective employers is sponsoring a challenge to generate new ideas for better connecting school outcomes to work. The top winner will be able to claim a prize of at least $5,000 and possibly more.

In the new challenge, which is being hosted through InnoCentive, Viridis wants to hear about proposals for bringing together stakeholders interested in closing the “skills gap,” a term that describes the chasm that exists between the skills employers require and the skills students possess.
