Meet Cohort Seven Of The Northwest Ohio Small Business Impact Program

Congratulations to the seventh cohort of our Northwest Ohio Small Business Impact Program.

This 12-week business accelerator program is designed to help individuals overcome the obstacles of entrepreneurship through hands-on advising and industry-specific mentoring. Over the course of the program, these entrepreneurs worked together alongside JumpStart’s Impact Program team to tackle key business issues, with significant emphasis on financial projections and capital pitches.

The program will culminate in a demo day-style competition at the Small Business Seeds For Growth event, sponsored by Huntington, on May 11, 2022, where program participants will pitch their business to a panel of judges. The grand prize pitch will take home $10,000, and each of the other participants will receive $2,500 to help grow their businesses.
