MaRS began as a public-private partnership. And a range of partners, from government and business—as well as individuals—continue to support our work. MaRS is an independent charitable organization (not, as people sometimes think, part of the government, a hospital or a university).

Your contribution supports our core mission: driving economic and societal prosperity by harnessing the full potential of Canadian innovation.

Please note that while MaRS actively supports entrepreneurs and their ventures through a range of services, as a charitable organization, we are unable to offer financial support to individuals or organizations through sponsorship dollars.
