Applications are now open for the Canadian Construction Innovations CONtact innovator mentorship program, which aims to match aspiring construction entrepreneurs with experienced industry leaders.
The program, developed in partnership with the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) with support from the National Research Council of Canada, aims to help those entrepreneurs refine their products and services.
“Our goal is to spark innovation and accelerate the use of new solutions to improve the industry’s productivity, safety, profitability and contribution to building sustainable communities,” said Mary Van Buren, CCA president.
While allowing for the development of digital innovation in construction, CONtact also aims to attract the next generation of workers.
