Practera is one of 8 teams from 4 countries who have advanced to the semifinalist round of the $5M XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling Competition, a three-year competition reimagining the future of work and transforming how we train and educate workers.
As a semifinalist, Practera will now enter the large-scale field testing stage of the competition, in which each team will need to demonstrate their proposed solutions, will rapidly place trained workers in 60 days or less, and then support the workers to ensure job retention of at least 60 days.
At Practera, we are inspired by XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling’s vision of a future where all workers have access to gainful and meaningful employment. A concept that so closely aligns with our mission, values and work to date.
Huge congratulations to our U.S. team, Prue Clifford, Wes Sonnenreich, Maxwell Chappuis and to all the other semifinalist teams on their achievement of making it to the next round. We’re proud to be working alongside some fantastic innovators as part of the XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling competition, reimagining the future of work and transforming how we train and educate workers.
We’re super excited and are looking forward to the semifinal competition!
