Meet Cohort Two Of The Northwest Ohio Impact Program 

We are excited to announce cohort two of the Northwest Ohio Impact Program! This 12-week business assistance program is designed to drive economic impact in the city of Toledo by helping individuals overcome obstacles to entrepreneurship through hands-on advising and industry-specific mentoring.

Over the next three months, these five businesses will be learning and working together alongside JumpStart’s Northwest Ohio team and select outside advisors from the community.

The program will culminate in a demo day-style competition on December 3 where all five entrepreneurs will use their new knowledge and skills to pitch to a panel of judges for a chance to take home up to $10,000 to grow their business.
