 "Think about the sources of capital available to advance our collective goals of achieving economic mobility. You’ve got individual investors. You’ve got companies. You’ve got philanthropy. You’ve got the actual training providers. You’ve got the public sector, which by and large is the biggest player in this system. How do you think about who pays, who benefits, who takes the risk?"
