Study: Maximizing the Potential of Innovative Jewish Start-Ups

report_coverIn Spring 2012, Bikkurim (now part of UpStart’s Innovation One Stop), together with UJA-Federation of New York, the Samuel Bronfman Foundation, the Natan Fund, the Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation, PELIE (Partnership for Effective Learning and Innovative Education), and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, published a study entitled “From First Fruits to Abundant Harvest: Maximizing the Potential of Innovative Jewish Start-Ups.”

The study draws on the experiences of entrepreneurs, funders, and cacpacity builders involved in launching innovative startups in the Jewish community, combined with research and analysis carried out by Wellspring Consulting—a national expert in the growth and scaling of nonprofits. Study findings highlight the financial resources required to launch and grow high-potential organizations; identify the key elements that enable and inhibit their growth; analyze the availability of funding and capacity building; and provide recommendations to Bikkurim, funders, capacity builders, and the field as a whole.
