SMU partners with Volta to establish permanent space at innovation hub

June 6, 2019

Saint Mary’s University has partnered with the Volta innovation hub, becoming the first postsecondary institution to have a permanent work space at the hub and providing its students and faculty with direct access to the Volta community of innovators. SMU’s permanent office space, dubbed the Entrepreneurship Connector, will help create new experiential learning opportunities, enable the SMU community to engage with the local Halifax community and industry, and provide access to resources. "Universities play an important role in driving innovation in Atlantic Canada, and they help attract the talent the region needs to thrive," said Volta CEO Jesse Rodgers. "This partnership will infuse Volta's community with the creativity, enthusiasm and innovative thinking that SMU students exemplify.” SMU (NS)
