Volta Labs, Halifax’s startup and innovation hub, will be co-hosting a one-day conference called Innovate Atlantic this November.

The startup incubator has partnered with the Rideau Hall Foundation, a Canadian charitable organization, to host the conference. It will feature panel discussions and keynote addresses that aim to inspire attendees to develop new and innovative Atlantic Canadian companies.

“Innovation is more than developing high tech products -- it’s about leveraging a growth mindset and adopting methodologies that create opportunities,” said Volta CEO Jesse Rodgers in a statement. “Innovate Atlantic will provide the inspiration, tools and information to inspire attendees to take advantage of the momentum building in Canada around a maturing ecosystem of entrepreneurs and innovators.”

Sessions will include  ecosystem development discussions, and presentations on resources and policy approaches.

This year’s speakers and panelists include: Kevin Lynch, the Vice-Chair of BMO Financial Group; Fiona Murray, Associate Dean for Innovation and Co-Director of MIT’s Innovation Initiative; John Risley, the President of CFFI Ventures; and Scott Mabury, the Vice Presidentof University Operations at the University of Toronto.

The conference will take place on Nov. 5 starting at 8 a.m. ending at 2:30 p.m. at Pier 21 in Halifax.
