Entrepreneurs and startups often need help, but getting professional advice can be inaccessible or unaffordable. Founded in 2009, Volition is a startup advisory and consulting firm dedicated to providing efficient, structured strategies at affordable rates.

The Volition team is made up of qualified and experienced consultants in startup business development and strategy. One of the managing partners is Women in Tech World’s trusted COO, Melanie Ewan, who leads Volition in content strategy, market and competitive research and analysis. She also works on grant and tax credit research, writing and application assistance.  

Volition Events, a new division of Volition, organizes and hosts monthly Pitch Nights. These events allow aspiring entrepreneurs to practice their 90-second pitch in front of a live audience and feedback panel, in a comfortable environment. Entrepreneurs receive expert feedback from the panel, this improves their pitch and  chances for success. Each event gathers 10-15 entrepreneurs and an audience of 60-100. Top pitchers, as voted by the audience, win prizes and are awarded an opportunity to pitch to real investors.

Women in Tech World is especially glad to partner with Volition for their Canadian Women’s Pitch Nights, which promote inclusivity and diversity in the tech startup sector. Volition Events  is expanding nationally, hosting five pilot events across major cities in Canada. Upcoming Women’s Pitch Nights:

Everyone knows that we are living in an increasingly tech-enabled world. Not surprisingly, this is reflected in the number of jobs that are now available in the tech industry. The problem is, while the Computer Science workforce has grown by 60% since 1991, the percentage of young women going into the industry has declined (Stats Canada 2011). This needs to change.
