Each successful candidate will receive 75% of their travel costs covered by Volta, with a maximum of $5000.
So far three companies have taken advantage of this program. All of them have said they felt that the experience was very beneficial to their company’s presence and knowledge. Thomas Rankin co-founder of Dash Hudson went to New York through the Volta Travel Program in 2013 where he was able to accomplish key meeting with partners, investors and media. Thomas says “that at a time when resources are tight, it [the travel program] enabled us to achieve critical milestones ahead of our public launch.”
