MaRS Catalyst Fund

MaRS Catalyst Fund provides early-stage venture capital funding and support to Canadian companies that are building strong businesses while pursuing social and environmental outcomes. We’re focused on generating both measurable social impact and strong financial returns. After seeing a lack of impact investors in Canada, Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Unite, along with the Mindset Foundation, seeded the MaRS Catalyst Fund. We back passionate entrepreneurs who are creating technology solutions that address society’s biggest challenges. They’re delivering better health outcomes, creating a more sustainable planet, and making students and workers more career-ready through innovative education technologies. The fund is GIIRS rated and will measure specific impact metrics on a per-investment basis.
