Who Is Eduity?
Eduity is an early-stage start-up company dedicated to the idea that everyone can and should be involved in workforce planning and development. Our basic business model is "input for free, insights for a fee" software-as-a-service for regions, organizations, and individuals. We see a huge potential market for Eduity. In the near future we will be providing a fee-based services to build local workforce maps and to generate organizational reports such as competency models, performance rubrics, staffing plans, and training checklists. We will also be developing tools for individuals to collaboratively create and implement personal workforce plans.

Extensive experience in business, economic development, education, and technology led me to develop an innovative and unique solution to the skills gap. Now the challenge is to translate Eduity from idea into reality. Do you see the need and opportunity for workforce innovation? Are you interested in helping to solve this critical problem?
