STEP #4 INNOVATE Toronto Update and Purchasing Information


As we head towards the end of production we are all very excited that the inaugural edition of INNOVATE Toronto will be published this coming Spring/Summer.


Since we first spoke the book project has continued to grow.

The first teaser video has been released:

More innovation stories are now being posted on the INNOVATE Toronto website:


I reviewed the XXXXXX feature that you, Gia, and her team created for the book and it looks amazing!

On behalf of MaRS and Global Village World, thank you for all your efforts and support in making this happen.


We are now planning for the printing of the deluxe hardcover publication, so it would be great to know how many copies you would like to pre-order. The pre-ordering of the book helps immensely with our planning of the print run.


As you know, there are no costs associated with being included in the Innovate Toronto book and web platform, however the project is entirely crowdfunded by the sale of the deluxe coffee table book, so we do offer packages to purchase the book.

  • Cover price:   $XX 
  • 10 – 24 books $XX
  • 25 – 49 books $XX
  • 50 – 99 books $XX
  • 100 or more books $XX

We can emboss your company logo on your book covers free of charge for orders of 25 copies or more.   


Please see the attached book planner for complete information on book purchasing and distribution suggestions.


As we discussed, most companies coming onboard have agreed to pre-order around 10 – 25 copies of the deluxe hardcover book. Larger companies and institutions are pre-ordering 50 – 100, or more. Considering that we plan to print and distribute thousands of books, this is a very cost effective, and very impressive way of spreading the word about your company and its contribution to the Toronto innovation ecosystem.


We have seen with past editions that almost all of the participating companies order the book to give to important clients and business partners, potential recruits, as well as for corporate gift giving, and to proudly display in their respective offices.

If you would like to pre-order a minimum of 10 copies at the pre-publication discounted cost of $XX.00, or 25 copies or more starting at $XX.00 with your company logo silver embossed on your book covers at no charge, please let me know.    


We hope that you will be proud of the publication and will want to have copies to distribute as well.


This distribution is a key part of the INNOVATE Toronto projects success. By distributing the books you are helping to spread the word about what an exciting time it is to be part of the city’s innovation ecosystem, and how your company is a key part of the story.

The XXXXX innovation story will be in the company of many great Toronto innovators.
