Jumpstart

Mentoring up-and-coming studios to reach the next level.

Led by RevThink consultant Joel Pilger, JUMPSTART is the accelerator where ambitious owners learn how to break through, win better clients with bigger budgets, and start doubling their revenue. 

Because what got you here… won’t get you there. 

NEXT ACCELERATOR BEGINS JULY 3, 2018. Please see below to learn if your firm qualifies.

Who Jumpstart Is For

Jumpstart is a 10-week intensive for smaller creative studios, agencies, and production companies. The accelerator is specifically designed for business owners asking:

  • How can our studio stand out and get noticed?
  • How can we compete with studios that undercut our prices?
  • How can we build relationships with new, better clients?
  • How can we win the maximum budget from our clients, every time?
  • How can we charge more – perhaps double – for our projects?

“Thanks for everything you do for the Jumpstart young entrepreneurs. Becoming part of this group is one of the best thing I’ve ever done for growing my business.” – Chiara at The Magic Collective (Italy)
