Health Demo Day

An afternoon highlighting cutting-edge technologies across digital health, medical devices and therapeutics. You’ll hear presentations from MaRS companies that help improve patient outcomes and manage ever-increasing healthcare demands. Participants will have the chance to request 1-on-1 meetings with the presenting companies.

Building and maintaining Canada’s talent pipeline

Canada’s life-sciences industry is a rare bright spot in the pandemic-challenged corporate landscape. But scaling companies need experienced senior executives and managers, plus scientists and software engineers — specialized talent that’s often in short supply. We must develop, attract and retain more senior talent. Without it, promising ventures could stall or move elsewhere to find the people they need. This panel will explore opportunities to bolster the biotech and life science talent pipeline.

Regional spotlight

This session will feature health ventures from three regions across Canada. How are these companies scaling, and what do their various approaches say about the Canadian health innovation landscape?
