Genpact, EdCast, and Positive Planet US Partner to Provide Free Online Learning to Under-resourced Entrepreneurs

Genpact, a global professional services firm focused on delivering digital transformation; EdCast, a leader in online corporate learning and upskilling; and Positive Planet US, a non-profit organization that promotes inclusive and sustainable economic growth and employment, have joined forces to lend their respective expertise to support entrepreneurs and help them amplify their impact on the communities that they serve.

The partnership adds essential learning resources for startup owners to Genpact’s Adapt and Rise e-learning platform, developed and built with EdCast. In an effort to democratize access to critical business skills, Genpact opened the program to the public in 2020, sharing a subset of its learning content from its own highly successful internal continuous learning platform, Genome, which is inspired by work with MIT’s Center for Collective Intelligence.

Genpact launched Adapt and Rise during the pandemic to give all professionals a free platform to upskill, reskill, and thrive in an increasingly digital economy and help companies become more resilient with adaptive, agile workforces. The challenges of the last year have further underscored how businesses increasingly need professionals with a combination of hard and soft skills to be successful in today’s business environment. For this reason, a professional learning path may include building digital skills, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics, paired with training in agile methodologies, change management, and storytelling.

The site builds on Genpact’s expertise and the collective intelligence of its more than 90,000 employees honed from delivering real-world change for hundreds of companies. More than 10 million learning hours were logged at Genpact in the last year.

Positive Planet has a highly successful track record of helping millions around the world, helping create sustainable development solutions for disadvantaged populations, in particular women and youth. Launched 23 years ago with the mission to make the world more positive economically, socially, and environmentally, it has helped more than 11 million people leave poverty behind. Its work strives for a more equal society, helping underserved communities – independent of their race, gender, background – create their own jobs and prosperity through entrepreneurship.

Positive Planet brings new content to the platform created for the unique needs of entrepreneurs, including curricula in such areas as sales strategy and business development, growth and operations, and marketing, legal, accounting, and finance for small businesses. Adapting business models in a difficult economy makes continuous learning and reskilling vital, and these learning paths offer the specific skills needed to build and grow a startup. The success of these businesses brings benefits to local communities as entrepreneurship can provide new career journeys as well as economic revival.

“One of the major obstacles facing under-resourced entrepreneurs is access: access to information, the right training, mentors, and networks,” said Stacy Simpson, global leader of corporate responsibility and diversity, equity, and inclusion at Genpact. “As we work toward fulfilling our purpose – the relentless pursuit of a world that works better for people – we’re partnering with like-minded organizations like Positive Planet that can make our Adapt and Rise platform richer and more valuable to forward-thinking individuals. By providing access to the skills they need to build professional resilience, they can help their businesses and communities prosper.”

Learning journeys from Genpact available on Adapt and Rise cover in-demand skills, including artificial intelligence, change management, customer experience, design thinking, storytelling, digital business strategy, and people leadership.  Combining those courses with Positive Planet’s range of learning curriculum for business planning for small business gives entrepreneurs access to a breadth of expertise that is critical to success, but is too often difficult to find in one place.

“To create positive change, learning must be inclusive and immersive, and we strongly believe our partnership with Genpact and Edcast furthers this goal,” said Ingrid Gonzalezpresident and chairwoman of the board of directors at Positive Planet US. “With Adapt and Rise, we help people focus on the individual skills they need, advancing their knowledge with the resources of companies committed to continuous learning, curiosity, and personal development.”

Powered by EdCast’s award-winning learning and talent experience platform, Adapt and Rise offers on-demand learning at a crucial time.

“Traditional education systems have not kept pace with rapidly-shifting workforce needs, with only a small percentage of public education investments go to adult and worker skilling,” said Karl Mehta, chief executive officer and founder of EdCast.“Our enhanced collaboration with Genpact and Positive Planet is a strong step in future-training more people and empowering them to take control of their learning and professional development as well as amplifying their potential to enable business success.”
