Our History

In 2013, four passionate individuals created a place for tech founders to build and grow their companies. Jevon MacDonald and Milan Vrekic wanted to provide the Halifax tech community with the resources and mentorship they wished for during the early stages of their tech startups, and Patrick Keefe and J Curry were keen to help make Volta a reality.

The four created Volta Labs (now simply referred to as Volta) as a founder-led startup community, that brings founders together to support each other and meet like-minded people.
