The Jumpstart Accelerator is a free 10-week intense and immersive training program designed to accelerate the lifecycle of Black and Latino-owned businesses located in the Rock County area. The Jumpstart Accelerator uses a hybrid form of in-person and online training, integrating classroom learning with real-world experiences and challenges of business ownership. Our accelerator is uniquely designed for small business owners who don’t fit the traditional, and often restrictive and exclusive, accelerator model. We work with minority-owned micro and small businesses like, food trucks, cleaning businesses, restaurants, home-based bakeries, gift shops, trucking companies, landscapers, contractors, and more.
Participants spend 10 weeks developing the skills to ideate and prototype new models of their business so they can take their business to the next level.
The Accelerator culminates in a Pitch event where a panel of judges will choose the top 3 ideas and award cash prizes.
Applications close April 30th. Successful applicants will be informed no later than May 30th. Classes meet on Mondays at 6pm, starting July 11 and run until September 19.
