The ACE Project Space helps entrepreneurs at the early stages of their business development and community partners reach their goals and have long-term success by working together, sharing experiences, and experimenting with new ideas. Community partners and entrepreneurs can also get advice on business decisions and discuss success strategies. The ACE Project Space is a safe environment for entrepreneurs, industry leaders, community organizations, and students to work together and have a chance to make a difference in their community.
The Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) Talent is has partnered with Red River College to help expand participation in the ACE Project Space Program. Through the ITAC Talent Career Ready program, eligible companies in the ACE Project Space Program will not only receive a wage subsidy, but also reap the benefits of employing work-ready students who will gain valuable hands-on experience in the emerging digital economy. The program provides up to 50% (to a maximum of $5,000) of a work term student’s pay in wage subsidies to employers. Employers that hire students from underrepresented groups including women in STEM, indigenous students, recent immigrants, persons with disabilities, and first-year students may also qualify for additional funding (up to 70% or $7,000).
