The $750,000 program funded by Access Ventures and executed by Render is focused on finding, funding, and scaling innovations to decrease barriers to employment in the Louisville region.
“The Reconstruct Challenge is a tool that helps us think differently about the way we approach big community problems like barriers to employment. There isn't a silver bullet out there--these kinds of challenges require creativity to move the needle. These selected innovators represent new approaches to various aspects of the employment challenge, and we're looking forward to measuring their impact in our community over the next several years.”
Bryce Butler, Managing Director, Access Ventures
