Through collaborations with Cornell experts and with matching funds from NY State, the JumpStart program helps NYS small businesses solve identifiable problems related to materials.
The award program provides:
JumpStart projects may involve up to $15,000 in project costs apportioned as 33% CCMR-NYSTAR funds, 33% company cash, and 33% company non-cash contributions (such as employee time, materials, travel expenses, and other expenses). Alternatively, the non-cash contributions can be less than 33%, with the proportion of the company cash contribution correspondingly increased.
Case studies demonstrate outcome and benefits for NY State small businesses.
