Do I need to already have a business started to come to a JumpStart Connect Pop-Up store?
No. While many who come through the stores have businesses already launched; you can come through and learn A LOT in advance of starting your company. You will be connected to business services that will help accelerate your launch.
What if I have been a business owner for several years, will I still benefit from a JumpStart Connect Pop-Up Store?
YES. No matter what stage you are in business, you are sure to find a business service that we are providing that is new to you, or an improved version of something you are already doing/using. Our goal is to be on the cutting edge of what’s new in business services, and no matter what stage you are, add value to your business by the companies we align you with.
What should I expect when I come to a JumpStart Connect store and how much time should I set aside to get the most out of the experience?
Ideally an hour. When you walk into a JumpStart Connect Experience store, you are matched with a “mentor,” you ask you a few questions about your business to get a good understanding of your needs. Then personally walks you station to station, introducing you to the experts and brands you need to scale your business as effectively as possible. Many of our customers love it so much they stay two hours or more or wind up coming back the next day because there is so much to learn and so many great people to meet.
