What We Do
JumpStart is a venture development organization, combining the principles of (private) venture capital and (non-profit) economic development to help entrepreneurs start and grow companies—from venture capital-backed startups to traditional small businesses.
Our work is focused on three core areas:
- Making Investments: We fund tech entrepreneurs with the capital they need to grow their startup businesses quickly.
- Delivering Services: We provide technical assistance to help high-potential businesses solve problems, drive growth and create jobs.
- Acting as a Value-Added Intermediary: We work on behalf of private, public and philanthropic funders who want to assist entrepreneurs—making grants and convening networks to turn their vision and resources into action and impact.
