Detailed Description

Update

MaRS Innovation (MI) is a commercialization engine that integrates, centralizes and accelerates time to market of the discovery and intellectual property assets from its 16 world-class research institutions.

MI’s discovery and innovation pipeline is derived from $1 billion in annual R&D funding. Created as a not-for-profit organization through the Government of Canada’s Center of Excellence for Commercialization and Research program (CECR), MI has raised $50 million from federal and provincial governments, member institutions and industry partners. MI’s vision is to transform the Toronto-based research enterprise into one of world’s most successful commercialization clusters.

Through detailed, market facing due diligence, MI identifies opportunities from Canada’s largest academic cluster for further development and commercialization through project management, intellectual property management, investment and technology development. By crossing the innovation gap, MI transforms these opportunities into successful high-value licensing transactions and financeable start-up companies.
