Volta Cohort is designed to help early stage, high calibre Atlantic Canadian startups attract and secure venture capital sooner.
How it Works
Volta Cohort participants are selected through an application process. Every six months, Volta hosts a pitch event to determine who is accepted into the program and only those chosen through the application process are eligible to participate.
Fifteen high potential applicants will be invited to pitch their business at the Volta Cohort Pitch Event – competing for investment. Up to five companies will be awarded $25,000 at each event.
The Volta Cohort Pitch Event
Volta Cohort’s Pitch Events are structured similarly to a pitch competition, where companies go on stage and pitch their company. Companies also have the opportunity to set up a display at the event to provide attendees with more information about what they are working on. These events are open to the public.
A selection committee of people from the larger startup ecosystem is established for each event. The committee will select the five companies to be awarded the investment at each event.
