Volta - About Us

About Us

Our Values

We are a place of mentorship and community; Volta is not an accelerator. Our focus is on the quality and quantity, not speed.

Our Methods

  • Provide world-class mentorship and support to new startups and budding entrepreneurs.
  • Encourage the creation of new startups, while nurturing the growth and maturity of existing ones.
  • Develop community-driven education and support frameworks.

Our Focus

At Volta, we’re building a community where entrepreneurs can come together to learn from one another, grow their companies and expand to global markets.

Providing a physical space for new technology companies is a long-term investment to grow Atlantic Canada’s startup ecosystem, leading to more new companies, jobs, innovation, products, exports and wealth in the region.
