Volta’s Women Taking over the World with Tech (WTWT) Pitch Competition is for female founders and entrepreneurs in Volta’s network and the Atlantic Canadian tech community. Unlike Volta’s quarterly Pitch Competitions, this competition will only be open to female founders and entrepreneurs. You do not have to be a regular attendee of WTWT Events to pitch.

Anyone is encouraged to attend and watch the pitching in action – please RSVP on Eventbrite. Light refreshments will be served.
