UpStart is thrilled to announce the 2024 Cohort of our flagship UpSpring program (formerly the Venture Accelerator), welcoming the nine entrepreneurial leaders and their organizations to the UpStarter Network!
Selected from a pool of more than 70 highly qualified applicants, these impact-driven ventures represent diverse initiatives and communities across the United States. With demonstrated track records of inclusivity, creativity, and vision, the 2024 UpSpring Cohort continues to reach up and inspire new experiences within the Jewish community.
These ventures will participate in a 12-month program, gaining access to the expertise, community, and capital to create long-term sustainability and scale their ventures’ impact. They join the ranks of over 100 alumni organizations that are working to create a positive impact and inspire new experiences in the Jewish community and the world we share. Below is the full list of ventures in the 2024 UpSpring Cohort and the cities in which they are based.
