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:

  • Green JumpStart NYC
  • JumpStart New Media
  • JumpStart for the Arts
