MaRS, a Toronto-based, not-for-profit incubation center, is leading a delegation of five cleantech ventures at this week’s Cleantech Forum XXIII in Boston.
The companies – all clients of MaRS advisory services – will showcase their products for the cleantech CEOs, investors, scientists and policy makers attending the east coast forum.
“While cleantech is a relatively new sector for MaRS advisory services, it is fast catching up with our other core strengths in information technologies and life sciences,” said Tom Rand, a cleantech entrepreneur, author and investor who leads MaRS’ cleantech practice. “MaRS is establishing itself as a major deal-flow engine in the cleantech sector, with an emphasis on early-stage companies.”
The presenting companies, all based in Ontario, offer innovations across a range of disciplines. They are: Alternative Fuels (deriving energy from waste), Nimtech (eco-friendly chemical process control), Real Tech (organic water testing), Skymeter (pay-as-you-drive GPS metering) and Vicicog (efficient wind turbine transmission systems).
MaRS Discovery District is a large scale, mission-driven innovation center focused on building Canada’s next generation of technology companies.
