This week Volta launched a new Corporate Membership program to better connect organizations with our community of innovators. This announcement comes as we prepare to officially open our new 60,000 sq. ft. space in the heart of Halifax’s Innovation District.
“Organizations in Atlantic Canada tend to be in the early stages of their innovation journeys – Volta’s Corporate Membership program will help them build capabilities, connect with talent, spark new idea and accelerate growth,” said Chris Crowell, Volta’s VP of Corporate Innovation.
Volta’s Corporate Membership packages are designed to suit the needs of companies no matter where they are on their innovation journey. Benefits include Network Memberships for employees, tickets to premium Volta events like Volta Cohort, complimentary and discounted skill development and learning opportunities, as well as an ecosystem education program and ecosystem advisor to act as the Corporate Member’s dedicated account manager.
Discounts on Corporate Membership packages are available for Volta Alumni companies, small businesses and not-for-profit organizations.
“Volta’s Corporate Membership packages offer a lot of value for companies in our business community,” said Crowell. “They provide a way to engage with startups, experience the high growth capacity of our ecosystem, and develop the methodologies and mindsets needed to innovate.”
Our Corporate Membership is not only for Atlantic Canadian companies. Volta has also created a special “Out-of-Towner” membership for organizations not currently operating in the region.
“Momentum in the East Coast innovation ecosystem is drawing interest from organizations outside of the region,” said Crowell. “We have companies from Toronto, Ottawa and elsewhere looking towards Atlantic Canada to see where there are opportunities for them here. Our Out-of- Towner package is a way for them to stay informed and get started locally.”
