What if we could find experts who have scaled businesses through other recessions and struggles into companies valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars? What if we could find some local businesses who aren’t sure how to adapt to this new world and give them access to business leaders who have decades of experience in transforming companies?

Jumpstart is where we gather a panel of business experts and have local companies from across the Innovation Collective landscape and give them a chance to pitch their company, what their current struggles are, and then the experts snap into action to give them expert advice on finding opportunities in this new world.
