More Than Just A Check
Welcome to Jumpstart...
Each year, we search for and invest in entrepreneurs from across the country who are building innovative solutions to improve health & healthcare. Our network is built to benefit entrepreneurs and their ventures by increasing opportunities for growth and success.
Entrepreneurs that join Jumpstart receive a capital investment from the fund and gain access to customers, follow-on capital, and a community of like-minded individuals.
Being the CEO of healthcare startup is hard work. No, it’s crazy hard work. You’re focused on generating leads, closing deals, building a brand, hiring talent, developing technology….just to name a few items on your to-do list. Jumpstart works with each of our founders to refine and focus the vision and direction of their company. You continue to build, let us help with strategy.
Sales & Pilots
The first rule of sales in healthcare: prepare for a LONG sales cycle. Not only is getting a foot in the door difficult, navigating your way to the right decision maker takes some serious time. Let us put you in front of the right people at the right time to speed up the already lengthy cycle of closing deals in healthcare. With our extensive network of industry partners, you’ll be drinking coffee like a closer in no time.
As early stage investors, we know we’re not the only ones. Odds are, you’ll need to raise additional capital and bring on new investors at some point. Good news, we know a few friends in the industry - hundreds in fact. When you’re ready for your next round, we’ll make warm introductions to investors that are interested in companies like yours.
Growth is a wonderful thing, but it can be overwhelming if you don’t have a plan for it. At Jumpstart, we sit down and discuss how you can strategically grow your team as you grow your business. Need to bring on an advisory group or board of directors - we can help with that too. We work in partnership with the Nashville Entrepreneur Center to connect portfolio companies with experienced healthcare professionals who are passionate about helping innovators and entrepreneurs.
Being an entrepreneur is a lonely business. When you join Jumpstart, you join a network of like-minded healthcare entrepreneurs who are going through the ins and outs of starting and growing a company just like you. Our alumni learn from each other, partner with each other and build valuable, life-long relationships.
