Volition is an advisory firm for startups and entrepreneurs. Over the past few years we’ve built a strong community through our signature events, hosted across Canada, in Seattle, and Europe. We are most well-known for our pitch events; we’ve hosted 72 pitch events since 2016 with 3800+ audience members and 416 companies. These events are built on our values of community and education; we provide a safe, comfortable space for entrepreneurs to come and either practice their pitch or join as audience to network and learn. In 2017 we also launched our women’s pitch nights series and student showcases. Our events are generally free or by donation in order to ensure accessibility to entrepreneurs and students.

In addition to these events we facilitate intros and investor pitch opportunities as well as showcase local entrepreneurs on our blog and partner with various startup ecosystem members.
