JumpStart Inc. is a Cleveland-based venture development organization that helps entrepreneurs start and grow companies. For each of the last several years, Silverlode has estimated the economic impacts of companies assisted by JumpStart and its partners. The economic studies enable JumpStart to communicate the impact of its services and funding to investors, partners, companies, government representatives, employees, and the public.
Silverlode uses IMPLAN to model dozens of subsets of geographic service areas, program types, business sectors, and demographic sectors. The reports are provided in modular and abbreviated formats for a variety of audiences and are published on JumpStart’s website.
