Protecting Your Startup During an Economic Slowdown: Leading US & Canadian Investors Share How to Navigate Changing Valuations

Autism CanTech! (ACT!) is a federally funded program that helps Autistic youth gain entry-level employability and technical skills for the digital economy. ACT! is a six-month program that includes four months of coursework. These students are then ready to apply their data and data administration skills in industry and look to partner with organizations to host a work experience opportunity.
