Project Jumpstart

Project Jumpstart empowers, facilitates, and supports entrepreneurial, innovative thought and action among Jacobs School of Music students as they prepare for a meaningful life in the arts.

We strive to be a leading catalyst of entrepreneurial, innovative action through presentations, workshops, discussions, networking events, conferences and publications. Central to these initiatives are partnerships with student groups and ensembles, Jacobs School departments, the IU Bloomington community, as well as organizations and creative individuals in the City of Bloomington and beyond.

Keep in touch with all of the exciting things happening with Project Jumpstart by following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
