Do you have an idea that you want bring forward?! Jumpstart will provide you with the resources at the U-Imagine Center collaborative work space to move your idea forward.  

What can Jumpstart do for you?

JUMPSTART is a 6 week co-curricular program  where you can put your big ideas into action!  Regardless of the stage your idea is in, Jumpstart is designed to help you (and your team) move ideas forward.   You work independently on your own ideas while building collaboration and community with others.

During Jumpstart you will have exclusive swipe access to the U-Imagine Center collaborative work space. You will be mentored by the Entrepreneur-in-Residence Maureen Cumpstone and other outside experts.  You’ll be guided to explore your ideas, develop  a mission or business model, test market feasibility, create a plan of action and launch your project or venture.   

At the end of the program, as a Jumpstart participant, you will have the chance to enroll in a one of two-credit independent study next semester and to apply for a $500-$1,000 seed fund grant to help move your project forward.
