    The JumpFund's mission is to invest women's capital in female-led companies with growth potential in order to generate a strong financial return and elevate the role of women in business. The JumpFund envisions to establish Chattanooga and the Southeast as the nation's best place for a woman to invest in or start a business. The Fund looks for ventures with scalability upwards of $20 million. Companies should also be an established LLC or C-corporation and located in the Southeast region of the US. Since 2013, the firm has raised two funds, invested in 29 women-led companies, saw the first successful exit, and engaged the capital of over 100 women (plus a few good men).
