RBC and Volta Renew Partnership to Support Women in Technology
RBC and Volta, Canada’s East Coast innovation hub for entrepreneurs and innovators, have renewed their partnership to support Volta’s Women Taking Over the World With Tech (WTWT) program and the broader Atlantic Canadian innovation community.
The partnership builds on RBC’s commitment to supporting Canadian women entrepreneurs and startup companies.
“Programs like WTWT are instrumental in helping women connect with one another and share their experiences in the industry,“ said Lorie McCarthy, Commercial Account Manager at RBC. “RBC is proud to support Volta’s efforts in creating a space where entrepreneurs with diverse backgrounds are encouraged to explore ideas, develop skills and launch tech-enabled businesses.”
In July, Volta hosted our first WTWT Pitch Competition. Thanks to the support of RBC, Neothermal Energy Storage walked away with a $500 Visa gift card and all of the pitching companies received a one-year membership to the Centre for Women in Business.
“The WTWT program’s growth shows there is a need for women-focused programming designed to support females in tech,” said Malary Schurman, Manager, Special Projects at Volta. “We’re excited about the opportunity to continue delivering programs and events that help connect and develop the skills of women working in the tech sector.”
The next WTWT event will take place at Volta on Nov. 20. Learn more about the program here: https://bit.ly/2PRoTwc
