JumpStart's Small Business Impact Program Accepting Applications

Apply by May 10

This intensive 12-week business assistance program is designed to provide focused business advising, industry-specific mentoring and collaborative learning. The cohort will work intensively on various key business issues, with significant emphasis on financial projections and capital pitches.

The Impact Program then culminates in a demo day-style competition where the entire cohort will pitch to a panel of judges for a chance to take home up to $10,000 to grow their businesses (all other cohort participants receive $2,500).

To be considered for the cohort, entrepreneurs must:

  • Live or work in the city of Cleveland
  • Meet with one of our business advisers before May 10, 2021
  • Generating more than $25,000 in annual revenue

Cohort classes are held every Thursday from June 10, 2021 through August 26, 2021. Due to COVID-19, all classes will be delivered virtually. JumpStart will work to accommodate individuals with limited access to technology who would like to participate.
