Ryerson University, one of MaRS Innovation’s 16 member institutions, has created the Digital Media Zone (DMZ) to give student entrepreneurs and researchers — or anyone connected with a great idea connected to their campus — the space they need to grow their ideas.
Dr. Hossein Rahnama, the DMZ’s research director and a Ryerson University professor, was interviewed this week by The Accelerator Gazette about Ryerson’s approach to accelerating and incubating technologies.
Rahnama is also the founder and CEO of Flybits, one of Mars Innovation’s spin-off companies.
Flybits is one of over 30 companies housed in the DMZ.
