In Canada, Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) and MaRS Discovery District have partnered to launch and grow high-potential clean technology companies in Canada. SDTC’s funding and support to companies complements MaRS Discovery District’s skills development.
“As a world leader in entrepreneurial skills development and venture services programming, MaRS is a natural partner for SDTC. We have long worked together to build Canada’s cleantech sector; this partnership agreement crystalizes those efforts, makes them more measurable and will accelerate commercial outcomes,” said David Harris Kolada, Vice President, Alliances & Market Development, SDTC. “Partnering with MaRS will allow start-ups and SMEs to more efficiently access the key ingredients to scale their business and access international markets, where our goal is to see a $50 billion Canadian clean technology industry by 2022.”
