Kira Wumpler, a Fuqua alum from 2004 wrote to me about a neat project she is working on, jumpup. They are giving away money to startups via a competition.
Here's some information from the website:
"The best idea could score $40K in cash and over $10K in expert resources. Plus, two first prize winners walk away with $5K.
Enter the contest, it's easy. Tell us what you'll Just Start. Fact, fiction or fantasy. What have you always dreamed of doing? What are you resigning from and moving towards? And, how will the Just Start grant ($50k) help you strike out on your own?"
