Hamilton, Ont., July 22, 2020 – PULSE Lifesaving announced they will receive funding support from two funding programs, totalling $29,000.
PULSE is an educational technology company and accredited lifesaving and first aid training provider developing innovative new ways to train workforces remotely using augmented reality.
PULSE will receive $24,000 from the Canada-Ontario Jobs Grant which provides direct financial support to individual employers or employer consortia who wish to purchase training for their employees. It is available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees. PULSE will also receive $5,000.00 from the Hamilton Business Centre’s Starter Company Plus Grant which is a training and mentoring program for businesses less than one year in age.
“PULSE has recently secured nearly $30K in grant funding to support our growth and development over the next several months. The training costs for not one, but two new hire, AR developers will be fully subsidized through the COJG training and employment program. This represents the beginning of a larger strategic partnership between PULSE Lifesaving, Mohawk College’s graduate certificate program in AR/VR Multimedia Production and EON Reality, to support the collaborative training of staff and applied research within our organization. We’re thrilled to report on these two recent funding announcements,” said Dawson Lucier, Founding Director at PULSE Lifesaving Inc.
