Built by founders for founders.

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.

In the 10 years of Volta's existence, the company has gone through many iterations, locations and leaderships.

From its grassroots origins at a space with no air conditioning and no doors to an ample state-of-the-art office and coworking space, things have definitely changed around Volta but one thing that has stayed the same is our dedication to helping founders and their startups succeed.
