Volta Outposts

Where large organizations engage the innovation ecosystem.

 Volta provides the environment for your company to operate like a lean startup. Solve problems and prototype outside of the corporate bog. External approaches provide new perspectives, which means new ideas and solutions for your business.

What is an Innovation outpost? It’s an external, arm’s length think (and do) tank, where smart entrepreneurial people work together to solve complex business problems without the corporate HQ restrictions.

What happens at an outpost? a team of talented people work together surrounded by the technology innovation ecosystem, acting like a startup: efficiently and effectively.

Where do these talented people come from? The region’s booming startup community! Volta will help you find the perfect leader for your company’s
outpost. We’ve met thousands of successful entrepreneurs and are here to make sure you meet the right people.

Is innovating inside of your company a constant challenge? Talk to us about joining the innovation district in Halifax.


Volta has partnered with the Atlantic Lottery Corporation to create Atlantic Canada’s first Innovation Outpost, based on the Communitech model in Waterloo, Ontario. It is anticipated this program will support large scale innovation and disruption of the gaming and lottery industry. The partnership and associated programming will set an exemplary standard for solving complex problems from the outside in, and of a regional scale partnership to address economic needs in Canada.
