SENSORICA lab

CAKE plays a very important role in the local and regional economy, for five years now. It provides support services to facilitate collaboration, sharing and participation, helping entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses. CAKE supports courses and public education activities to democratize new technologies such as 3D printing. Dozens of students have done their internship in our lab and our affiliated entrepreneurs have gained valuable access to academic laboratories, through our partnerships with academia.

In February 2011, we created the SENSORICA lab, a unique open innovation space that is recognized internationally. The lab is at the same time a co-working space, a fablab, techshop, an incubator, and an accelerator. Our model effectively combines the advantages of these different types of open and collaborative spaces, and helps develop useful skills for the modern entrepreneur. Moreover, our model has already attracted the attention of academic institutions, various international forums, and even the White House.

Entering CAKE’s universe is accessing to an ecosystem that is striving to create a new world. CAKE is part of the emerging collaborative and sharing economy.
We are a living lab for technological and social innovation, for creating and refining advanced collaborative entrepreneurial practices. We also act as a catalyst at the center of a large ecosystem of local and international organizations that spearhead new economic trends.

Words from our partners

  • Avec ACES je retrouve une volonté inconditionnelle et innée à pensé aux autres bien avant soi-même. Faire du bien-être pour ses semblables est une priorité dans ma vie. Humaniser mes actions et poursuivre sans relâche mes prises de conscience à un niveau humain est la seule et unique vraie voie à ma propre quête d'épanouissement. Alors, quand je travail à travers le laboratoire de SENSORICA sur l'agriculture bio et réellement démocratisée, sur les technologies et les innovations vraiment ouvertes, sur de nouveaux modèles de création et d'échange de valeurs, je sais que je me rapproche de mon objectif ultime.

    Francois-Eric KingFondateur de XBLIX
  • Je développe mon entreprise d'impression 3D  au cœur du laboratoire SENSORICA administré par ACES depuis l’année 2012. Ce laboratoire et cette communauté collaborative m'a permis de lancer BDan Concepts avec des coûts négligeable, en m'offrant de l'espace, l’équipement et un environnement ou j'ai pu apprendre la technique. Oui, j'ai appris toute ma 3D au sein de SENSORICA!

    DanFondateur de BDan Concepts
  • Si Montréal a de nombreux atouts pour se prévaloir d'être l'une des villes les plus dynamiques au monde pour l'économie collaborative, ACES-CAKE et Sensorica est l'un de ses éléments moteurs.
    Précurseurs dans le domaine des Open-Value Networks, ils permettent d'expérimenter un modèle de co-création d'avenir sur des projets de pointe portés par des citoyens de Montréal.
    Collaborer avec un environnement si innovant  est un vrai tremplin pour OuiShare à Montréal.
    Alexandre Bigot Connecteur OuiShare Montreal
  • Comment innover pour le bien commun, si ce n'est dans un espace ouvert, un espace qui accueille des gens passionnés, qui laisse le champ libre à la créativité, et favorise la rencontre de gens talentueux ? Le reseau d'innovation ouverte SENSORICA, administre par ACES, foisonne de projets qui, derrière une apparence parfois technique, ont une portée sociétale réelle. On peut appeller le laboratoire SENSORICA tiers lieu, fablab, maker space ; c'est avant tout un esprit de partage – à l'intérieur et au-delà de la communauté – qui fait l'unicité de SENSORICA.
