We provide direct business assistance to help entrepreneurs address key business challenges and achieve growth milestones. These milestones can include commercializing technology, making a key hire, finding clients, generating sales, identifying strategic partners, entering into a clinical trial and raising risk capital.
This assistance can come either from an experienced Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs), who collectively have hundreds of years of entrepreneurial experience across a variety of industries, or from the successful, seasoned business leaders that are part of JumpStart’s mentoring program. After establishing key business milestones, our EIRs and/or mentoring teams work with entrepreneurs on an ongoing, regular basis to help these ventures make steady progress. The ultimate goal of this assistance is often to guide an entrepreneur to funding that supports the next stages of company growth. If it leads to an investment from us, assistance from an EIR intensifies.
