Be part of the Toronto hardware community.

Join MaRS as we discuss the intersection of hardware as a data source and digital business models. MaRS Cleantech and Enterprise are joining forces to bridge the hardware and digital communities, with venture speakers from product development teams in both sectors. We’ll also hear from Steelcase on how their open innovation model has led a digital transformation of their office furniture business.

The event is also an opportunity to discuss common challenges with peers, learn first-hand from other ventures’ experiences and gain valuable feedback from industry experts. In facilitating these meetups, we aim to make product development easier and help accelerate the speed at which products are brought to market.
