SACRAMENTO REGION: SlingShot is an initiative of the California Workforce Development Board (CWDB) to encourage and support regional partnerships across the state to engage in new collective actions that can “move the needle” on workforce challenges.

After an extensive planning and review process, SlingShot implementation began in August 2016, and has created an innovation fund of $750,000 to provide grant and contract funding to organizations supporting the ecosystem for entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small businesses.
