Apply for Funding

JumpStart NJ utilizes Dealum, an online deal management tool, as the exclusive means by which entrepreneurs may apply for funding. To maximize your potential for a successful capital raise, we highly recommend that you understand the financing options available and your company's needs before submitting your materials. Securing funding is often the most difficult step in the creation of a new business. For an early-stage company, convincing someone (especially a stranger) that your idea will yield a great return can be more challenging than operating the business. Give yourself the best chance for funding by developing a compelling story that gets investors excited.

Next Steps

Once we review your application and supporting materials, we will determine if your company meets our investment criteria. If so, you may be invited to present at our monthly meeting where several companies make 10-minute pitches to our angels followed by a 10-minute Q&A. Or we may invite you to our Meet the Angels event, where there are no presentations but the chance to network with our investors.
