Jacksonville Business Journal: SkillStorm partnership with JU paying off after first year
September 16, 2021

A year after technology training company SkillStorm partnered with Jacksonville University to provide customized training for First Coast employers, the program is seeing success, particularly in some of its targeted courses.

SkillStorm moved its headquarters to Jacksonville in August 2020, launching the JU partnership a month later.

SkillStorm’s business model is based on having employers pay for the training, which is free to students. Classes are tailored for the need of employers, customized — on top of a standard base of training — to meet workforce demands.

“We believe we can retain our best and brightest local talent by deploying these resources to large employers in the Jacksonville area,” SkillStorm CEO Justin Vianello told the Business Journal at the time of the launch. “This is where JU is absolutely essential in the partnership, because they have the relationships with large employers, and they have the ability to leverage those relationships to help them understand the value of building this domestic talent.”

Now one year since the launch of its partnership, Jacksonville University President Tim Cost reflects on the first year’s successes and where the program is going next.
