MaRS Investment Accelarator Fund (IAF) invests in passionate entrepreneurs with ground-breaking technologies. We are the leading seed stage investor in Ontario, investing in IT, health and cleantech companies with a minimum addressable market size of $100M.
We invest at the seed stage, with investments of $500K. We do 10-12 deals per year, but see well over 300 companies. We target early-stage technology companies that are close to commercialization. Ideally the product has been built, and there is some early market traction. No significant revenue, assets or institutional investment.
