Research Reports

Jumpstart’s publications have helped change the conversation and contributed to the communal agenda for almost a decade. The Innovation Ecosystem and Economy reports measured and defined the field of Jewish innovation; the Jumpstart Report series provides a deeper dive into specific topics of interest, and the Connected to Give series was a ground-breaking look at faith-based giving in the U.S. All our publications are based on original research, expert observation, critical discussion, and reportage of important convenings and conversations.

The two reports that mapped and described the Jewish innovation boom of the early 2000s.
The Innovation Ecosystem: Emergence of a New Jewish Landscape The Jewish Innovation Economy: An Emerging Market for Knowledge & Social Capital
