What We Do
In the past 25 years, all net new job growth in the United States has stemmed from young, high growth companies. But not every type of entrepreneurial company will become a large employer—it’s the young, high growth, technology-based startups that create hundreds or even thousands of jobs for their communities. At JumpStart, we work with entrepreneurs leading those companies and regions that want to create more of them.
Our work with entrepreneurs
We provide intensive assistance to Northeast Ohio entrepreneurs leading high potential companies. Those services are delivered by successful entrepreneurs who work one-on-one with entrepreneurs to establish and achieve value-creating milestones of growth, such as raising capital, generating revenues, testing the commercial viability of a product or service, and moving a product or service into the market. We also selectively invest in the highest potential companies positioned to excel in high opportunity markets, focusing on entrepreneurs with breakthrough, market-driven technologies.

Our work with regions
We partner with regional leaders across the country to accelerate their entrepreneurial successes. Using the knowledge gained from strengthening Northeast Ohio’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, we collaborate with community and regional leaders interested in growing their own entrepreneurial companies and building a strong ecosystem to support them.
