Jumpstart is a private, member-lead, angel group that invests in early-stage technology companies in the Mid-Atlantic region. As the leading angel group in New Jersey, Jumpstart members include many successful entrepreneurs, business executives and venture capitalists in the region.
Jumpstart was formed in November of 2002 with the active support of New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC) and New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA). At that time, the CEO's of the NJTC and the EDA met with successful entrepreneurs and professional investors to encourage the formation an angel investor network to help early-stage companies. Shortly after this meeting, Jumpstart was born.
Since its formation, Jumpstart has developed a strong relationship with the venture capital community. This relationship along with ties to the EDA and the NJTC allows Jumpstart to take full advantage of local resources to help early-stage companies.
Jumpstart focuses on seed/early stage companies with core technology needing both funding and seasoned management assistance to move forward. Jumpstart actively looks for investments in the $200k-$1 Million range, and sometimes co-invests in larger investments with other angel groups or venture capital firms. Since 2004, Jumpstart has invested over $30 Million in over 45 companies in the Mid-Atlantic region
