House by one of Canada’s leading innovation centres, MaRS Discovery District, Jolt will host a week-to-week feature with inspiring speakers from the industry, as well as Jolt partners.
The program will conclude with a Demo Day where the startups in attendance will pitch their idea to an audience of over 250 from the technology, media and investor communities.

“JOLT has been an incredibly eye-opening experience,” writes Rami Alhamad, CEO of Push and a member of Jolt’s Winter 2013 cohort. “You'll go in thinking of your product as a technical solution to a problem, and then leave with the knowledge that there are many other pieces of the puzzle that need to be addressed.”
The benefits for being selected into Jolt’s Fall cohort includes $50,000 in seed capital in exchange for 9% equity, a workspace in the MaRS Commons, mentorship and access to over 100 Jolt mentor network, free market intelligence from research institutes, weekly workshops, guidance from experienced experts and networking opportunities.
