V15Able Looks to Bring Disabled Jobseekers and Employers Together
V15Able is the brainchild of founder and CEO Letisha Wexstten. Wexstten was born without arms and at an early age had to learn how to do everything with her feet. She began her journey to inspire and assist the disabled community in 2012 when she debuted her YouTube channel, "Tisha UnArmed", where she creates and posts informational and humorous videos of her daily life with a disability. Currently the channel has more than 170,000 followers, and its success made Wexstten think about what else she could do to help the disabled community. Having struggled herself in the job market, she set out to create a platform to help disabled candidates connect with employers.
V15Able (15 represents the 15% of the global population with disabilities)
Most recently, Wexstten and V15Able were accepted into the Pipeline Pathfinder program – their first ever class of an elite network for often overlooked and underserved entrepreneurs. Pipeline is an entrepreneurial support network founded in 2006 to serve the Midwest's budding serial entrepreneurs leading scalable companies, but who have not yet made the leap to full-time.
Currently the V15Able website offers disabled candidates the ability to create their own free, customizable profile that best describes and showcases their capabilities in the workplace. Candidates may then share their profile with prospective employers with a personal link. Once fully funded, V15Able.com will be a fully functioning employment platform where candidates will be able to share their profiles, search other candidates and communicate with employers. Employers and recruiters will be able to search the platform for a fee and filter candidates based on their employment needs. Investors, business leaders, and disability advocates interested in helping bring V15Able to the next stage can contact Letisha Wexstten at email@example.com.
