MaRS is starting several initiatives to better inform Ontario startups and entrepreneurs about the importance of having a global market view and help them tap into global markets. The first priority market is China.
Join us at our first Going Global event, Ontarioâ€™s premier event focused on the Chinese market. Designed to offer insight into key issues, this event will address intellectual property (IP) protection, as well as how to identify market opportunities, deal with investors and build government relationships.
