The Information and Communications Technology (ICT) group works closely with startups to commercialize their disruptive technology innovations.

From idea to growth, the ICT group supports over 500 startups annually. In 2012 alone, our visionary entrepreneurs attracted $150 million in capital and generated over $90 million in revenue. They also helped create over 2,600 jobs!

Working out of the MaRS Commons, a dynamic 8,500-square-foot co-working facility, the ICT team includes resident advisors and associates, as well as a robust network of mentors and industry specialists.
