The organization charged with guiding the development of Austin’s growing health care district has entered into a partnership with a local jobs accelerator targeting employment in that industry. Capital City Innovation, the organization that will help shape the “innovation zone” located near the eastern edge of downtown around the University of Texas’ Dell Medical School, will work with Impact Hub Austin to increase the number of applicants to that group’s recently announced workforce development accelerator. That program was created to help tech companies, employers, government officials and other interested parties work together to help place Austin residents into well-paying middle-skill jobs in the health care industry, along with advanced manufacturing and information technology. The accelerator has extended its application deadline to March 19 to take advantage of the new partnership, with the first cohort expected to begin working on April 11. Other partners in the accelerator include Capital Area Workforce Solutions, Assemble, Google, JPMorgan Chase & Co., BuildFax and Digi.City.
