Volta - Pitch Competitions

Pitch Competitions

Volta Pitch Competitions, powered by OKR Financial, are an opportunity for those in the Atlantic Canadian tech and innovation communities to practice their three-minute business pitch and receive feedback from peers and industry professionals.

Our Quarterly Pitch Competitions provide participants with experience pitching to investors and potential early adopters. Each competition will be judged by a panel of entrepreneurs, potential investors and community leaders. Pitches will be evaluated on the quality of the business pitch or idea, and not the viability of the business.

Quarterly Pitch Competitions are only open to residents of Atlantic Canada. 

An idea, product or company may be pitched a maximum of twice. Previous Volta Pitch Competition winners will not be allowed to pitch the same idea/business at future competitions (new businesses or ideas from the same company are permitted).

The next pitch competition is taking place on August 11, 2021 from 12pm to 2pm. 

Applications for this competition close on July 25 at 11:59pm.

The winning Pitch will receive:

  • $500 Visa gift card
  • a one-hour consultation with an OKR Financial representative
  • Name engraved on Volta’s Pitch Competition trophy

Selection Criteria

When providing a description of your company or idea, be sure to outline its originality. When reviewing the applications we will be looking at the information provided and since we’re a tech innovation hub – the technological component or your company or idea.
