Volta is excited to grow our community of innovators with the addition of two new Resident companies and official welcoming of four early stage startups as part of the Volta Cohort program.
Halifax-based startups SalesRight and B-Line Analytics joined Volta as Residents. SalesRight helps B2B SaaS sales professionals close more deals by arming them with interactive and intelligent pricing that enhances the buying experience and their bottom line. B-Line Analytics is a mobility survey platform that helps environmental consultants and organizations easily and affordably collect occupant mobility data to improve building occupants’ health, achieve green building certifications, and enhance biking and transit infrastructure within cities.
“As a serial entrepreneur, Volta is the ideal environment to develop my latest company,” says Bill Wilson, CEO and Co-founder of SalesRight. “Being a part of a community that provides opportunities to not only connect with other founders, but also give back by sharing lessons I’ve learned on my entrepreneurial journey is incredibly valuable,” said Wilson.
In addition to new Residents, Volta officially welcomed several of the new Volta Cohort companies selected at a pitch event in November. The Cohort companies include Milk Moovement, a dairy industry ERP platform that brings outdated systems to new life and provides significant data improvement for all stakeholders in the dairy industry; Neothermal Energy Storage, a company developing an innovative, smart home compatible, electric thermal storage heater for residential supplemental space and water heating; Byos Cybersecurity, a startup focused on creating a product to monitor and protect companies’ critical resources from data leaks, security breaches, fraud and infections; Aurea Technologies, a cleantech company with plans to help solve the climate change crisis by creating simple, human-centric, revolutionary wind turbines for consumer and commercial markets.
The celebration took place at Volta’s new 60,000 square foot space during a Champagne Welcome event, supported by LaBarge Weinstein. Over 50 of Volta’s community members gathered to welcome the companies.
“Our Residency program has been instrumental in providing the support and opportunities founders need so they can focus on building businesses that reach global markets,” says Jesse Rodgers, CEO of Volta. “The companies joining Volta add an impressive mix of founders with diverse backgrounds to our community,” said Rodgers.
Volta’s Residency program offers more than $50,000 in resources to accepted startup companies. Interested becoming a Resident at Volta? Learn more at voltaeffect.com/apply/residency.
