Late last month, WKYC-TV3 spent some time with JumpStart to get a sense for what we are doing for the local economy. What came out of the meeting was a great piece for the station's What Works in Cleveland segment. On August 28, 2009 the NBC local affiliate aired the piece, which not only tuned viewers in to what JumpStart is doing to help high growth potential companies, but gave them an insider's view as to what one of those companies, AnalizaDx is up to.
AnalizaDx is developing early cancer detection tests, which the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals have found to be highly effective. From its lab, which is a converted elevator factory located on Cleveland's near east side, AnalizaDx President, Arnon Chait, explained that they've been able to bridge the gap between idea and a company with the help of JumpStart.
Beyond AnalizaDx, JumpStart Ventures has invested in 39 other high growth potential companies located in Northeast Ohio because we believe that entrepreneurship growth is critical to our economy's future.
