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. The program culminates in an exciting demo day-style competition where program participants will have the chance to pitch their businesses to a live audience and a panel of judges. The winning pitch is awarded a $10,000 grand prize, while all other participants will receive $2,500 to help grow their businesses.
The participants of the Small Business Impact Program come from diverse backgrounds and industries, but they all share the same goal of building a successful business in Northwest Ohio. We are excited to introduce you to this cohort’s participants and share their stories as they work toward achieving their entrepreneurial goals.
