Up-Start Winners: Our clientsWe match qualified entrepreneurs with MaRS advisors.

You’ll get the right advisor for your venture, stage of business development and location. Our advisors have been successful entrepreneurs—starting and leading global companies, exploring new markets, developing new products and services and raising capital.

As a MaRS client, you’ll also get access to services such as market intelligence. Practical learning programs. And connections to strategic partners.

All at no cost to you. A combination of private and public funding allows MaRS—a charitable organization—to offer these services.

Our practices
We work with entrepreneurs in a range of sectors, including:

Social innovation

Originally treated as a separate practice, social innovation has since been embedded in everything we do, given the growing number of MaRS ventures across all practice areas that identify a social purpose. If you are seeking advisory services within one of our practice areas (including education ventures, which lie within the MaRS ICE practice) and feel that an additional consultation with a member of our social innovation team would help advance your social mission, we encourage you to discuss this with your intake advisor.

Want to know if you qualify?

We’re looking for early-stage ventures in technology and social innovation. We’ve also developed a range of resources that’s accessible to everyone. Like our Entrepreneur’s Toolkit. And special events.
