Yes. The MaRS Commons rents space to a community of startups. Arrange for space on a full-time, part-time or drop-in basis. See the space page for pricing and other details.
The information technology, communications and entertainment (ICE) practice at MaRS is the largest area of concentration within the four sectors that MaRS fosters. In addition to ICE, MaRS works with entrepreneurs in clean technology, life sciences and health care, and social innovation.
The ICE practice has a simple ambitious goal: to help make Toronto – and by extension, Ontario and Canada – a world leader in the information technology and new media industries. We aim to achieve this through our intensive programs and the mentorship provided by our six staff members and 60 volunteers. Learn more here.
The MaRS Commons is a 5,500-square-foot space on the second floor of the MaRS Heritage Building. The space has 75 co-working seats, four meeting rooms and a café. It’s home to the ICE practice and dozens of entrepreneurs.
