A Canadian startup has launched a virtual accelerator to help bridge the skills gap.
AudaciousYou’s 14-week Future Skills Accelerator will see participants learn from coaches and peers via video conferencing calls, with a guaranteed interview offered on completion with one of the employers partnered with the initiative.
Ryan Brain, Managing Partner of Deloitte’s Toronto region, an employer working with the accelerator, said: “We’re committed to readying our next generation of leaders and we’ve made it a priority to support organisations like AudaciousYou. We believe AudaciousYou has an innovative solution to help bridge the talent and skills gap in our country. We’re excited to be a part of it.”
While the employers, including Royal Bank of Canada and Sun Life Financial, are mainly hiring in Canada and America, the course is open to everyone.
