In Missouri, we are aggressively filling our talent pipeline in new and creative ways.
And a lot of that is thanks to Jim McKelvey.
Missouri is proud of McKelvey, and Jack Dorsey of Twitter fame, with whom he founded Square, the innovative FinTech company that has transformed how businesses handle transactions.
But what you might not know is that McKelvey is also the founder of LaunchCode, an organization that is using the age-old apprenticeship model to transform our talent pipeline, meet company talent needs and create opportunity for hard-working Missourians.
As he said in Thursday’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “the results are simply stunning.”
