Join JumpStart and the Cleveland Browns for a special 20th Anniversary Entrepreneur Showcase, featuring the 20th Cohort of JumpStart’s Small Business Impact Program.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, we’re raising the bar, upping the ante and doubling the prize money. At this demo-day-style pitch competition, our five Impact Program participants will take to the stage and present their business to a panel of judges for the chance to win up to $20,000. All other participants will receive $5,000. The event, presented by the Cleveland Browns, will include a special commemorative program honoring past participants and the community organizations who helped fuel Cleveland’s premier small business accelerator.

Small businesses are the heartbeat of a thriving community, but navigating the path to business ownership is challenging and lonely. Launched in 2016, the Small Business Impact Program is a 12-week business intensive, helping entrepreneurs build skills, navigate challenges and grow. Seven years and 19 cohorts later, the program has graduated 188 small businesses, deploying more than $2.3M in grants and business-friendly loans.


Thank you for supporting and attending our events. The modest ticket price we charge helps offset event costs so we can continue to deliver critical resources and personalized support to fuel entrepreneurial success. For this event, valet parking at House of Blues Cleveland, refreshments and entertainment will be provided with your ticket purchase.
