This past November, Cheryl Hilton – a valued member of the Volta community and participant of the first Volta Academy cohort – passed away after a courageous battle with cancer.

In honour of Cheryl’s memory, we are launching a new Volta Academy bursary for senior entrepreneurs who show the same passion and entrepreneurial thinking that Cheryl exemplified.  The Cheryl Hilton Encore Entrepreneur Bursary will cover the cost of participating in Volta Academy.
