Halifax startup hub Volta will hold its next quarterly Virtual Pitch Competition May 28.

The competitions offer budding founders the chance to practice giving a three-minute pitch to a panel of judges. Winners are chosen based solely on the quality of their pitches, not the quality of their companies.

Victorious entrepreneurs will receive a $500 Visa gift card. 

Volta says on its website that applicants should emphasize the unique elements of their product or business idea in their initial application, with their ideas’ technological elements being of particular importance.

The competition will be streamed online beginning at noon on the 28th. You can can register for free here.
