"I feel that Volta is a really strong support system, one of the strongest in Atlantic Canada. It's a hub where startups can come together to talk to each other and become a part of a community. As new founders, we don't have a lot of connections, we don't know a lot of people or who can do each job the best, but Volta can offer that."
"Over the last 3 years, Volta has been a resource that's grown with us. Most programs you do as an entrepreneur are temporary but Volta has been able to adapt and support us as we've grown. In the beginning, it provided me with a desk to work out of and then a space of our own, and now we have fully virtual advisory and support. It's very rare to have a partner that can do that, let alone have a Residency customized to support each individual entrepreneur"
"Volta is a space where we can work together, a resource for information and connection. It's a very welcoming place to have big ideas! We've come to really adore some of the folks that we've worked with over the years and really appreciate them for following our journey and being supportive. "
"Volta was the first group to invest in Milk Moovement, so they will always be an integral part of Milk Moovement's story! Along with their investment, they gave us office space, mentors, and fellow founders to surround ourselves with. This took our company from being just an "idea" to really believing we could be global leaders in food technology."
“Volta helped us find the support we needed as we started our journey, by introducing us to professionals that complimented the strong technical background of our team. We are very grateful to have worked with Volta and recommend more startups reach out to their fantastic team!”
“Volta One was a cauldron. And not just because the radiators were stuck on high. From the moment we took up residency in 2013, we felt the pressure to move quickly and advance our business. There was always another resident company wanting to beat you in a pitch competition or recruit your talent. The competitive yet supportive atmosphere pushed us to build our product and pivot quickly. Ultimately, Dash Hudson found product-market fit and moved on from Volta. It is an important part of our history and it was integral to our success.”
