The fastest growing tech hub has discovered a new neighbourhood
This is MaRS Waterfront: a brand new workspace concept for high-tech innovators. In partnership with the University of Toronto and Menkes, MaRS Waterfront provides the work, meeting and event space that a founder needs to grow their company.
Toronto’s waterfront is the world’s newest smart-city district — where digital connectivity meets accessible neighbourhoods that achieve environmental sustainability targets, transit networks and urban lifestyle.
A one-stop-shop for innovation success.
Housed within the 400,000 sq. ft. Waterfront Innovation Centre by Menkes, MaRS Waterfront will offer leading and emerging innovators a unique place to meet and collaborate with great people; to do deep-dive work in an inspiring setting; and to build your company from vision to reality. It’s also the ideal place to host an event, network with peers and get the world to take notice of your innovations.

“Every entrepreneur needs peers to relate. I fell a lot over the course of my journey; MaRS and Toronto’s innovation community helped pick me up.”
“Being a MaRS tenant means more than just taking up space. It’s about being part of a community with a mission. And it’s been an ideal place to scale our company as we strive to make a positive impact on the world.”
