Summary: The Jewish community is faced with the new, significant and exciting challenge of supporting and integrating the most promising post-start-ups in a systemic way. Currently, the Jewish community offers very little support specifically geared toward post-start-up needs, nor are those needs broadly understood by funders, capacity builders and even by the organizations themselves.
This study focuses on those start-up and post-startup organizations, few in number but strong in transformative potential, that are poised to make a significant contribution to the Jewish community. It examines the unique needs and opportunities of both start-ups and post-start-ups in the Jewish community and the challenges they face as the innovative Jewish start-up sector matures.
This report also provides useful direction on how the three critical players in this sector—funders, support organizations, and the new organizations themselves—can work together to advance those initiatives with the greatest potential to transform the Jewish community.
