With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the business trends in labour markets are moving towards automation and digitalisation. Due to this, millions of people are losing their jobs as companies are now looking to survive and are figuring out how to operate in the current pandemic situation. According to a survey by the McKinsey Global Institute, around 800 occupations in 46 countries estimated that between 400 million and 800 million jobs could be lost due to robotic automation by 2030. And, this is where the Amsterdam-based startup SkillLab wants to make a difference.
SkillLab, a technology company that turns skills into career paths, has raised €1.5M in its Seed round of funding from Dutch impact venture fund Rubio Impact Ventures.
