About The Application Process

This application captures information about you and your business/idea. The information you provide will help us connect you with a variety of resources to help you grow–either directly from JumpStart, or through one of our many partner organizations across Northeast Ohio.

After submitting your application, a JumpStart team member will contact you. They may ask additional questions and request any additional information we might need to connect you with the right resources.


Our services and funds are designed for entrepreneurs following the highest growth path, interested in raising significant outside funding and/or operating in a technology industry in which significant growth is possible.
We recommend you gather all necessary information prior to beginning. Be aware that we will ask you for the description of your business and your current cash needs.
After submitting your application, you will receive a message from a JumpStart team member who will discuss your plans, ask any questions which will be helpful in this assessment or refer you to the right resource for your next step.
