Jump Finance (formally Jump Credit) wins Austin Fast Start competition

It’s not a real pitch competition without a giant check ;)

It’s not a real pitch competition without a giant check ;)

Less than a month ago, Jump was nothing more than a loose collective of teachers and entrepreneurs scattered around the world, a handful of Google docs, and a dream. On January 15th, we took a big step towards making it real.

Co-founder John William Meyer successfully pitched our vision to the Austin Young Chamber at Capital Factory in Austin, Texas, taking first place at the 2019 Financial Tech competition!

In addition to winning a $2500 grant that will help fund our initial cohort of Jump loans, John William also received office space and other services to build the company.

We can’t wait to share more news as we move forward. Congrats to the other finalists!
