Meet the Participants of the Cleveland Small Business Impact Program’s 21st Cohort

JumpStart’s Small Business Impact Program is a 12-week business accelerator that provides hands-on advising and industry-specific mentoring to participants. The program focuses on helping these entrepreneurs overcome key business issues, with a significant emphasis on financial projections and capital pitches.

Throughout the program, participants will have the opportunity to work closely with the Impact Program team and fellow entrepreneurs to tackle their challenges together. At the end of the program, the graduates take part in an exciting demo day-style competition and have the chance to pitch their businesses to a live audience and panel of judges. The winning pitch is awarded a $10,000 grand prize, while all other entrepreneurs receive $2,500 to help grow their businesses.

These local entrepreneurs may come from diverse backgrounds and industries, but they all share the same goal of building a successful business in Northeast Ohio. We are excited to introduce you to this cohort’s participants and share their stories as they work toward achieving their entrepreneurial goals.
