What's in this episode?

It's that time again! Welcome to the next episode of our #voctechpodcast series!

This week we are looking at investment in lifelong learning and workforce development. We chat with Marissa Lowman about Village Capital’s Future of Work and Learning accelerator program and Marissa’s background in early edtech ecosystem building. We then hear from Owen Henkel at Pearson Ventures, on the importance of venture capitalists having expertise in their investment areas. We also find out about Marissa’s and Owen’s past formative experiences in education.

Thank you to Ufi Charitable trust and Ufi Ventures for supporting this series and vocational skills development in the UK, through their investments and grants in vocational technology. You can check out their work here.

You can follow the series conversation using #voctechpodcast and #voctech

Happy listening!
