“Great Resignation” draws investment capital to start-ups addressing the “skilling” space

Primarily, those investments are focused on two areas: (1) upskilling, which provides skills to grow in an individual’s current career; and (2) reskilling, which involves training for an entirely new job.

Crunchbase writes that “the funding spurt comes as employers are pumping more money into keeping workers around. Beyond pay raises, many are investing more heavily in education and career development for entry-level level jobs and beyond.” You can read the article at this link.
