MaRS Catalyst Fund
Investing in business as a force for good
MaRS Catalyst Fund is an impact investment fund that supports Canadian companies solving social and environmental challenges — domestically or abroad — using the power of business and technology.
Advancements in renewable energy technologies, energy storage and advanced materials are working to reduce the effects of climate change. Artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies are also being used to reduce our reliance on traditional energy sources and improve renewable power efficiency. We invest in technologies like these that have a positive impact on the environment — especially those that reduce or replace CO2 emissions.
New technologies have enabled us to customize and humanize healthcare. We invest in scalable technology or devices that significantly impact the healthcare system by advancing personalized medicine, improving outcomes and decreasing wait times.
Technology is revolutionizing the workplace, but it’s also enabling students and workers to gain the skills and experience they need to succeed. We invest in scalable technologies that equip students and workers in diverse communities and across socio-economic classes to excel in the jobs of the future.
