Volta is thrilled to grow our community of innovators with the addition of eight new companies. With the official welcome of these companies, Volta is currently home to 32 technology startups.
“As someone who has been a Volta Network Member for quite some time, I have seen firsthand how supportive the community is and I’m incredibly proud that Tranquility Online is now a Resident,” said Joel Muise, Co-founder and CEO of Tranquility Online. “The access to resources and guidance provided by experienced mentors will help us grow our business and expand to new markets.”
Here are the new companies that now call Volta home:

“When I joined Volta, roughly 35 companies had been a part of the Residency program over Volta’s first three years,” said Jesse Rodgers, CEO. “Now, Volta has over 50 Resident and Alumni companies in our community – including more than 30 startups working out of our space today. That growth represents how far our community has come in the past five years.”
