New on MaRSDD.com: Future Leaders 2015: Dispatch from Day 4 - Whether we’re writing an essay, interviewing for a job or explaining the merits of broccoli to our kids, we’re all involved in sales. And since we spend so much of our time selling, we might as well learn how to do it properly. This was the primary goal of Day 4 of the MaRS Future Leaders camp, a program for the idea builders and doers of tomorrow. When people think of sales, they often picture a hard-bargaining used car salesper...

New on MaRSDD.com: At MaRS, the kids are all right - The way I see things, content used to be king. Then, almost overnight, everyone had content. When this happened the value of content decreased—in part because much of it wasn’t any good and in part because we began to focus on shiny things instead of what was the end result of a lot of hard, slow work (which is what building great content takes). The result is a lack of opportunity and, to borrow from The Who, a lack of opportunity for yo...
Here at MaRS, we offer a range of innovative programs for youth entrepreneurship featuring amazing content that ensures the kids are all right. Just in July, MaRS and Toronto have hosted some of the best programs for young people our city and nation have ever seen.

New on MaRSDD.com: Future Leaders 2015: Dispatch from Day 2 - If Day 1 of the MaRS Future Leaders camp was about exploring problems and coming up with ideas about how to solve them, Day 2 of the summer boot camp for teens was about getting out there and testing those ideas out. The future leaders conducted interviews at MaRS with the goal of discovering what people thought about their ideas and how they could be improved. In search of potential customers to interview, some of the teens ende...

New on MaRSDD.com: Future Leaders 2015: Dispatch from Day 5 - There was a definite buzz in the air as I walked into the MaRS Auditorium for the final day of the MaRS Future Leaders camp last Friday. Designed to expose teens to the world of entrepreneurship, the weeklong camp challenges youth ages 13 to 18 to start a company in one week. The program culminates with a pitch competition during which the future leaders present their ideas in front of a panel of judges. This year, MaRS hosted 45...
