“I am no one to be trifled with.” – Man in Black, The Princess Bride
The life sciences and healthcare team at MaRS elevated its game in 2012. Having put serious focus into expanding our networks nationally and internationally, we have seen significant growth across all initiatives.
The impact of the success of our clients and programs is nothing trivial, being singularly focused on accelerating the adoption and implementation of novel technology to improve global health. This year, event attendance has increased across the board, from the MaRS Future of Medicine Series and Conference (up 40%) to the groundbreaking MaRS Health IT Innovation Forum, as well as successful investment events and industry engagement efforts.
More importantly, leveraging a more powerful international network opens new markets and development opportunities for MaRS clients.
Our clients—over 200 startups in the medical device, health information technology and therapeutics sectors—have been extremely busy and successful. Here are some quick hit highlights from this year.
We all know that entrepreneurs never sleep… but maybe for the holidays our clients can catch a bit of a break.
Moving forward into 2013, we will continue to drive this exceptional momentum forward. Happy holidays to all!
