This 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.
Along with funding, Cohort companies are given space at Volta and access to a board of mentors comprised of CEOs and founders of Volta’s Resident and Alumni companies. The board will meet with each company every two months and hold the company accountable for agreed upon milestones and metrics. Between meetings, the companies have access to all relevant programming and support Volta provides. Dedicated workshops specific to the needs of Cohort companies are also arranged throughout the cohort year. For companies outside of Halifax, the Volta team will look to arrange support with partnering organizations in other cities across Atlantic Canada.
In addition to a $25,000 convertible note, Volta Cohort recipients receive the following for a one-year period:
- Space to work at Volta with meeting room access
- Volta programming (office hours, workshops, events, socials)
- Dedicated programming specific to the needs of Volta Cohort companies
- Board of mentors
The next Volta Cohort Pitch Event is taking place on Wednesday, May 19 at 5:30pm.
*Volta Cohort Pitch Events take place every six months in May and November.*
