JumpStart NYC is a job training and placement pilot program designed for workers laid off from a range of professional services sectors (e.g., financial services, legal, media, human resources, accounting) looking for opportunities within New York City’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Find upcoming opportunities on the JumpStart NYC website.
Created by NYCEDC and SUNY’s Levin Institute, JumpStart NYC offers an entrepreneurial "boot camp," followed by a 10-12 week unpaid consulting assignment with a startup company. In some cases, projects may turn into full-time assignments.
Since its inception the program has expanded to include training in specific fields and sectors.
