This past weekend was Skills Canada, a large competition and trade show where tradespeople compete in their trade. Not only is this competition an impressive collection of trades, but it is also a gathering place for innovation in the fields as well as people who make decisions at their organizations.
Skills Canada was a particularly good convention for Bit Space because not only did we have a client in the main trade show floor where we were demonstrating our technology, we had 2 additional booths showing our tech. We were very proud to have so much of our work on display for thousands of kids, competitors, and tradespeople.
In this episode I talk about the ACE project space at Red River College. It is a new initiative bringing RRC closer to the startup community and getting students interested in working with or stating their own startup.
Red River College is inspiring young entrepreneurs and helping build the skills that will move Manitoba into the future.
I gave another awkward speech to students at Red River College recently. This might not be awkward to most people but I’m not used to it. The topic was jumping off a cliff or doing what I did and jumping off a shit load of small hills.
The talk was for entrepreneurship students in the Business Information Technology program at RRC and is about building your network of mentors, gaining support and taking a leap of faith.
