Who Jumpstart Is For

Jumpstart is a 90-day intensive for up-and-coming creative studios, agencies, and production companies. The accelerator is specifically designed for business owners ready to run a great creative firm but are asking:

  • How can our creative firm stand out and get noticed?
  • How can we compete with firms 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 command higher prices?

“I wanted to express my gratitude. Over these last weeks, Jumpstart transformed how we deal with current clients, our roles in our business, and our approach to getting future clients.” – Robert at Creative Mammals (US)
