Since September, MaRS Discovery District in Toronto has become like a second home to me. Not just because of the community I’ve tapped into while attending the top-rate weekly Entrepreneurship 101 lectures. It also happens to be a welcoming gateway that extends into windows of opportunity and the doorway leading to the steps to success – a happening place where you can hang your hat and gather around the table along with the wall to wall bright minds and innovative organizations that occupy the building. I never leave without feeling energized and hopeful.
Strategically located a heartbeat away from the some of the nation’s best teaching hospitals, buzzing financial district, government chambers and halls of higher learning, it easily converges into a definition of paradise for any entrepreneur.
