JumpStart Collegiate Generator LaunchVT HULA

Jumpstart Collegiate is a 10-week cohort-based business development program specifically for college students and recent grads.

Connect virtually with the people and resources you need to build your startup!

This program is traditionally hosted at Generator. Due to Covid-19, the ten 3-hour business workshops led by LaunchVT will be virtual.

Students who are currently enrolled at a Vermont college, including those graduating in 2020, are welcome to apply. Generator will select 6-10 student businesses who will be eligible for:

        • 10 Business Workshops
        • Access to business experts
        • Business plan development and planning support

There are several options for participation and your school may provide funding if your startup qualifies.

A limited number of scholarships are available for qualified applicants, thanks to generous support from HULA
