Fifteen Atlantic Canadian startups will pitch at Volta Cohort’s fall pitch event on Nov. 28 in Halifax, and as many as five of them will receive $25,000 each in investment, mentorship and resources.

The event at Pier 21 marks the third intake to Volta Cohort, which is a funding and mentorship program that provides investment and resources for early-stage Atlantic Canadian technology startups. In the past year, the program organized by the Halifax-based startup house Volta Labs has awarded a total of $250,000 to 10 companies.

“Access to funding at an early stage can drastically reduce the challenges founders face in Atlantic Canada,” said Volta CEO Jesse Rodgers in a statement. “Volta Cohort is helping accelerate the growth of high potential founders by providing space to collaborate with their teams, world-class mentorship opportunities and programming tailored to their needs.”
