<MaRS, College Street at University Avenue>. TORONTO is no slouch when it comes to the tech scene. In fact this city is now #3 in North America, behind only Silicon Valley and New York City. Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Kik, Shopify and HootSuite – all well-known – have offices in the GTA. Start-ups, Up-starts and Started-up firms have plenty of co-working spaces to choose from in TORONTO, including BrightLane, WorkPlaceOne, the MaRS Discovery District & Ryerson University’s DMZ.
Ryerson University’s Centre for Urban Innovation (CUI), under construction on Gerrard St. E., will be a research, incubation & commercialization hub focused on solutions to urban infrastructure issues. CUI will feature 40,000 square feet of space for faculty and students researching alternative energy, water management, food production and data analytics. Architects – Moriyama & Teshima
TORONTO is very much in the tech business.
