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 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 is accepted into the program, and only those chosen through the application process are eligible to participate.

A maximum of 15 high potential applicants will be invited to pitch their business at the Volta Cohort event – competing for a $25,000 investment. Up to five companies will be awarded investment funds at each event.

What happens at the Volta Cohort Pitch Event?

The Volta Cohort events are structured similarly to a pitch competition, where companies go on stage and pitch their company for three minutes. 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
