Western-Massachusetts based angel network River Valley Investors (RVI) has completed an investment in ApprentiScope, committing to lead the round.

ApprentiScope is revolutionizing the way businesses implement and manage modern Registered Apprenticeship and Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Programs. By combining modern software automation practices with deep industry knowledge, ApprentiScope is helping employers across the country train productive employees more efficiently than ever, while simultaneously increasing retention, decreasing spending, adding redundancy, and eliminating compliance errors.

Paul Silva, RVI Manager said, “Will Lippolis, ApprentiScope founder, really impressed us – he’s built an impressive list of customers as a one-man show, giving us confidence in his ability to scale. ApprentiScope is also a local company, and a member of Launch413’s portfolio, so we felt ApprentiScope was a no-brainer. Will further proved us right with his openness to feedback throughout the process.”

Will Lippolis, Founder of ApprentiScope said, “In this day in age, businesses can no longer rely on higher education as their main recruiting channel, which has led to a near unilateral investment in Registered Apprenticeship and Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Programs by some of the largest companies in the world. Our platform allows these companies to easily implement, manage, and scale their programs by automating every aspect of their complex and specific management processes. We’ve had great success so far and are on track to be nationwide by 2021 with the support of VCET, RVI, and Launch413.”

This is River Valley Investors’ first investment in ApprentiScope.
