JumpStart Inc. was founded in 2004 to address Northeast Ohio’s lack of economic development by providing tech startups with high-impact services and VC investments.
In 2008, the Ohio Third Frontier enlisted JumpStart as an intermediary to manage state funds as pass-through grants to qualified technology-based economic development organizations.
In 2016, we broadened our service offerings to Cleveland-area small businesses, specifically focusing on historically marginalized entrepreneurs.
In 2019, JumpStart opened an office in Toledo and expanded our entrepreneurial support system to reach across Northern Ohio.
In 2022, we launched JumpStart Ventures to provide investment capital to early-stage, Ohio-based tech founders and elevate regional venture capital activity.
