Are you a Maker with an awesome product and ready to turn it into a business? This program will PAY you to Jump/Start your company!
Davis & Hodgdon Associates CPAs is thrilled to announce our sponsorship of this exciting new program offered by Generator Makerspace.
How does it work? Generator Jump/Start selects 3-4 makers with great product ideas for its twelve-week session. Jump/Start entrepreneurs are given free 24/7 access to Generator makerspace, a $1000 stipend and free tool training classes to help them refine their product prototype aided by Generator’s expert shop leads.
Jump/Start entrepreneurs attend six bi-weekly guest speaker workshops and receive 1:1 mentoring based on the curriculum developed by LaunchVT and guided by local experts in subjects ranging from Market Analysis, Revenue Generation, Financial Management, Business Formation, Intellectual Property Protection, Brand Development, and Financing.
At the end of the 12 week program Jump/Start entrepreneurs will present their business plans and products. They will leave with an analysis of their business that they can use to apply for LaunchVT’s early stage acceleration program or other acceleration programs and funding opportunities.
There are no strings attached—this is an equity free program.
In addition to monetary sponsorship the firm is pleased to have two of our experts present the 3rd workshop in the Jump/Start series on Financial Management. FOr more information about the program and how you can get involved please visit: https://generatorvt.com/jumpstart.
Davis & Hodgdon Associates CPAs and Generator BTV have announced a multi-year sustainable partnership. The relationship, labeled by Davis & Hodgdon as a “Signature Partnership”, begins with the firm’s sponsorship of an administrative/marketing intern and support for Generator’s Jump/Start program. Davis & Hodgdon introduced the “Signature Partnership” concept in 2014 to leverage the firm’s financial resources and the skills and expertise of their staff. Through this alliance, the firm will support Generator through all aspects of giving: sponsorship, pro-bono work, volunteer opportunities and beyond.
The “signature partnership” between Davis & Hodgdon and Generator was created to develop deeper impacts within the community as it leverages the expertise of each organization, allowing for a concentrated sustainable social mission effort. The signature partnership model is part of the firm’s corporate social responsibility policy developed specifically for implementation for small businesses.
