What is MaRS Impact Health?

MaRS Impact Health is a new event, to be held online June 22 and 23, 2021. We’re hosting MaRS Impact Health to bring together the health ecosystem for two days of engaging and interactive programming. It offers an opportunity for entrepreneurs, investors, academics, policymakers and business leaders from across Canada — and the world — to participate in inspiring talks, can’t-miss networking, informative breakouts and more.

What time zone is MaRS Impact Health being streamed in?

How do networking opportunities work?

MaRS Impact Health has an online hub for automated one-on-one meetings. The networking zone on our partner platform, Hopin, offers an experience that feels like FaceTime or Hangouts, with two people paired over a direct video call. In the networking tab, when an attendee clicks the ready button, the system searches for someone else who has done the same. If someone else is available, the two are matched instantly and a two-minute video chat begins. After two minutes, the meeting ends. Attendees will also have the opportunity to connect with others participants via the chat functionality within Hopin.

An attendee list will be available within Hopin.
