“By far and away it was your deep healthcare knowledge and network Jumpstart was able to provide for us. Because we had gone through an accelerator previously, we had some connections but in reality, we just had a new company.... we were at a place where we could grow and we needed an investor partner who would be able to help us really see that growth potential. What Jumpstart was able to offer really aligned with our goals."
