Connect with peers and leaders in the innovation ecosystem while you enjoy a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of MaRS and the next wave of innovative companies that are building our future.

Thought leadership

Our sessions are based on four pillars:

1) Trends | Anticipate and plan: Gain insight into current trends and learn how to put your business ahead of the curve.

2) Tools | Implement and succeed: Get hands-on, practical training to implement the latest innovation theories at work.

3) Inspiration | Ignite and motivate: Hear new ideas and learn best practices from corporate innovation leaders.

4) Network | Share and learn: Collaborate with peers and innovation experts in the MaRS ecosystem. Great things happen when worlds collide and converge.

By the end of the event, you'll leave with:

  • An updated set of skills
  • A different way of thinking
  • A fresh outlook on the world of corporate innovation

Exchange ideas and collaborate with peers throughout both days.

Innovators’ Café: Have meaningful conversations with fellow corporate innovators during our extended breaks. Our laid-back environment fosters collaboration and learning.

Innovators’ Pub: Unwind and reflect on future possibilities over refreshments — and plan your next meeting with fellow MaRS Verge attendees.
