About MaRS Discovery District

About Us
MaRS Discovery District (@MaRSDD) in Toronto is the one of the world’s largest urban innovation hubs. MaRS supports promising young ventures tackling key societal challenges in the health, cleantech and ICT sectors. In addition to helping startups launch, grow and scale, the MaRS community is dedicated to cross-disciplinary collaboration, commercialization of discoveries and driving ideas to impact.

MaRS also supports a number of related business units which include the Business Acceleration Program (providing central programming to regional innovation centres across Ontario and Canada), the Centre for Impact Investing, MaRS Solutions Lab, an Events team (bringing mission-aligned speakers and events to MaRS), and a Real Estate team that provides a range of tenant services to startups and key strategic partners.

Who We Are
Located in the heart of Canada’s largest and the world’s most diverse city, MaRS is uniquely placed to lead change. We bring together educators, researchers, social scientists, entrepreneurs and business experts under one roof. Founded by civic leaders, we have a mission that is equal parts public and private — an entrepreneurial venture designed to bridge the gap between what people need and what governments can provide.
