MaRS DD Workshops:  The growth trajectory of any business is dependent on two main items: the product and how well you tell the story of the product to your target market.   This spring, develop strategies to build a user base early in the game.   Once you start gaining traction with little capital, we will teach you how to ask for more in our Pitching to Investors workshop.
