Globalization concept



JumpStartNJ was founded in 2002 with the active support of New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC) and New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA). Since its formation, JumpStartNJ has developed strong relationships with the angel and venture capital communities in New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia and Boston. These relationships, along with ties to the NJEDA and the NJTC, allow JumpStartNJ to take full advantage of resources in the Mid-Atlantic region to help early-stage companies innovate and grow.

JumpStartNJ is proud to have the support of our sponsors, and we work closely with partner organizations that share our goal of supporting technology innovation in the Mid-Atlantic region.
