What is JumpStart?
A business support programme exclusive for Warwickshire* residents. We make it all about you – your needs, your plans, your skills, your confidence, your (business) dreams.
We are here to show you a route to better way to approach your job search, volunteering opportunities and building your own business. And it is all through what you can do and what you want to do. We aim to show you how to identify your most valuable skills, how to become more confident because of your abilities and what is the best route for you to take – self-employment, finding the right job for you or the best place for volunteering opportunities that may need you.
The support comes in the form of group workshops and peer-to-peer informal networking groups.
Do I have to have a business idea to participate?
If you have a business idea, that is great! We will work with you to make it happen. We will answer your questions and work with you every step of the way for you to achieve it.
If you don’t have a business idea, we are still able to help you. Our workshops are not business related and are the perfect starting point for clients who want to explore their options and see what is the best route for them.
In short, with an idea or not, we will be happy to look at your enquiry.

Can I apply if I already work with another programme?
It depends. If the programme is one of our partners under the county-wide Business Support Programme that is currently running, then you will have to choose which service you want to continue working with. If the programme is not under the Business Support umbrella and compliments our services, then we may be able to help you. In any case, we will let you know – we will never keep you in the dark.
