JUMP Incubator

JUMP Incubator

Welcome to the new JUMP Incubator, a hybrid summer program for CU Denver students and alumni offered by CU Denver’s Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship.

The JUMP Incubator is designed for student startups that are looking for the resources and guidance to take their concept beyond the ideation stage. We can help your startup company execute new product development processes through a suite of learning and mentorship opportunities. Student teams will finish the program by developing a minimum viable product and pitch deck.

Each week consists of a two-hour workshop led by an expert guest speaker and a one-hour meeting with a team mentor. This interactive, 7-week summer program can equip your small business with:

  • A $2,000 stipend per team
  • Free, dedicated workspace
  • Equity-free membership
  • Weekly workshops, coaching & leadership development
  • Peer-to-peer accountability
  • Networking opportunities
  • Exclusive Demo Days
