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.
CCMR JumpStart Case Studies demonstrate outcome and benefits for NY State small businesses.
Please note that the NYS’s Empire State Development (ESD) office requires us to report annually economic impacts that resulted from the CCMR-funded project to demonstrate return on the state’s investments: economic impact reporting.
The CCMR will write press releases, success stories and articles with the collaboration of the industrial partners to showcase the CCMR program and the partner company.
