About XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling

Imagine a future in which all workers can rapidly attain new and more relevant skills to their current workplace – and their next one.

XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling is a $5M, 30-month competition in partnership with New Profit, Strada Education Network, and Walmart.org to quickly reskill under-resourced workers for the digital revolution.

Under-resourced communities in the U.S. face systemic barriers to learning, mobility, and progress. Core problems impeding effective workforce development include a widening skills gap, deteriorating job quality, and a lack of collaboration between players in the labor market. With an unprecedented digital disruption and adoption caused by COVID-19 comes a new opportunity to radically change the lives of millions of Americans.

XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling will forever change the future of work. Novel solutions developed in XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling will uplift the labor market in the U.S. and close the widening skills gap.

The winning team will leverage novel solutions that will rapidly train 350 individuals in 90 days or less at no entry cost, place as many as possible within 60 days, ensure job retention of at least 60 days, and demonstrate exponential adoption by deploying the training solutions for 5,000 individuals in three industries.
