HTC Launches $2 Million Investment and Attraction Fund

This summer, entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to seek capital investments from the new $2 million Health-Tech Corridor Investment and Attraction Fund.

The fund, a part of Jumpstart's Evergreen Fund, was built upon a unique collaboration between the public and private sectors. Fund investors include the City of Cleveland, the Cleveland Foundation, several private sector stakeholders, and the Ohio Third Frontier program.

The investment fund has two purposes in mind: to help financially support the development of unique and innovative businesses and to bring talented individuals to the ever-growing Heath-Tech Corridor.

Businesses applying to the fund must currently be located outside the Health-Tech Corridor; must show high-grow potential by presenting a thorough business plan; and be led by strong entrepreneurs with integrity. JumpStart's team will work with the Health-Tech Corridor staff to determine fund investments.

You might say,

"But I'm already in the Corridor and
can't be eligible for this fund."

Don't worry. This is good news for you, too!

The fund provides advantages to existing HTC companies.

The HTC Investment and Attraction Fund will bring bright minds to the Corridor, allowing you the opportunity to network with a larger audience and discover new ideas and partnership opportunities.

You may already have an eye on a promising individual or startup. The fund is a great way to steer young talent to Cleveland and place them in close proximity to some of the nation's most advanced academic and medical institutions and health-tech companies, including yours.

Moreover, existing HTC businesses may be eligible for investment from JumpStart's NEXT Fund or Evergreen Fund.

[There are also numerous other investment opportunities at your disposal.]
