About this Event

The eighth Volta Cohort Pitch Competition is taking place on Wednesday, May 19 at 5:30pm (ADT).

You will receive a link to the stream at 3:00pm on May 19.

You will hear from some of Atlantic Canada’s most innovative, early stage startups, and see up to $125,000 in investment awarded live that evening. 

What is Volta Cohort?

Volta Cohort is designed to help early stage, high calibre Atlantic Canadian startups attract and secure venture capital. The program provides mentorship, resources and investments of $25,000 for up to five companies through a microfund co-founded by Volta, BDC Capital, Innovacorp and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. 

How are companies selected for the Volta Cohort Program?

Every six months, Volta hosts a Cohort Pitch Event to determine who will be accepted into the program, and only those chosen through the application process are eligible.

High potential applicants will pitch their business at the Volta Cohort Event. Up to five companies will be awarded investment funds of $25,000 at each event.

What happens at the Volta Cohort Pitch Event?

Volta Cohort Pitch Events are structured similarly to a pitch competition, where companies go on stage for three minutes to pitch their business idea. These events are open to the public. 

A selection committee is established for each event and will be made up of people from the broader startup ecosystem. 

Selection criteria for Cohort Companies will be based on the following:

·        Ambition of idea

·        Disruptive level of the technology

·        Ability of the team to execute

·        Impact that $25,000 will have on the company

Apply to Pitch:

Are you ready to pitch? Applications are now open and will close on Monday, March 29, 2021 at 11:59pm. All applicants will be notified as to the status of their application by or before the last week of April.
