What is Volta Cohort?
Volta Cohort is designed to help early stage, high calibre Atlantic Canadian startups attract
and secure venture capital sooner. The program provides mentorship, resources and investments of $25,000 through a micro-fund co-founded by Volta, BDC Capital, Innovacorp and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.
How are Companies Selected into the Volta Cohort Program?
Every six months, Volta hosts a Cohort pitch event to determine who is accepted into the program, and only those chosen through the application process are eligible to participate.
A maximum of fifteen high potential applicants will be invited to pitch their business at the Volta Cohort event – competing for $25,000 investment. Up to five companies will be awarded investment funds at each event.
What Happens at the Volta Cohort Pitch Event?
The Volta Cohort events are structured similarly to a pitch competition, where companies go on stage and pitch their company for three minutes. These events are open to the public.
A selection committee is established for each event and will be made up of people from the broader startup ecosystem.
Selection criteria for Cohort Companies will be based upon the following:
· Ambition of idea
· Disruptive level of the technology
· Ability of the team to execute
· Impact that $25,000 will have on the company
- Gibli Innovations
- Jara Developments
- Manage Your Home
- Sparrow Acoustics’
- Tracker Inventory System
