OVERVIEW

Tower Labs is a non-profit organization founded by Tridel and MaRS to accelerate the adoption of green building products and services and to help advance innovative start-up companies targeting customers in the real estate industry. We are based at the MaRS Discovery District in downtown Toronto, Canada.

We are pleased to consider any product, equipment component, service or technology that has potential to reduce the lifecycle environmental footprint of a building or highrise construction project. We have worked with clean web and smart home products, HVAC systems, green materials, and renewable energy.
We will work with start-ups or multi-national corporations; OEMs and component developers – up and down the supply chain. Our main criteria is a willingness to make at least an in-kind contribution to the implementation of a demonstration project, and strong evidence of a product that will have a beneficial impact on the environmental performance of buildings and/or their occupants.
Tower Labs is a non-profit organization, but we offer multiple approaches to finance a demonstration:

a) through a demonstration project loan (see details);
b) by paying project management fees;
c) collaborative fundraising;
d) revenue sharing on future sales.
