Social Innovation Generation @ MaRS

Social Innovation

The Social Innovation programs at MaRS consist of several components:

  • Advise MaRS ventures in each of the sector areas (life sciences and healthcare; cleantech and physical sciences; and information technology, communications and entertainment) on their impact through both an economic and social impact lens
  • Support for social finance through the MaRS Centre for Impact Investing
  • Ecosystem development to create an enabling environment for social ventures to succeed

We are part of the Social Innovation Generation (SiG) national collaborative. SiG advances new approaches to addressing persistent social challenges on a national level. Members include SiG West (Vancouver); SiG@McConnell (J.W. McConnell Family Foundation); and SiG@Waterloo (University of Waterloo). SiG@MaRS focuses on support for social entrepreneurs.
