Initiated by the New York City Economic Development Corporation, JumpStartNYC hosts a 10-week action learning project consisting of courses, events and seminars developed by the Levin Institute, a graduate institute of international relations and commerce within the State University of New York, to encourage participants to develop active networks and help further their careers. Sponsoring companies such as ClusterSeven get the use of these highly skilled assets to perform project work.
âClusterSevenâs involvement in such a prestigious program exemplifies our commitment to bolstering our local community and providing talented people with new career opportunities,â said Ralph Baxter, CEO of ClusterSeven. âOur goal is to build upon the participantsâ talent and turn this project into potential full- or part-time jobs while encouraging growth in New Yorkâs start-up economy.â
âNew York Cityâs best asset is its people, and the Bloomberg administration started JumpStartNYC to make sure we harness our best assets by retraining workers to join startups and smaller companies. We believe this investment in our Cityâs talented workforce will help lay the groundwork for the next generation of companies to grow. We applaud ClusterSeven for joining our efforts to support entrepreneurship and ensure that the Cityâs economy remains strong for future generations,â said NYCEDC President, Seth W. Pinsky.
Selected for its natural fit with financial professionals, ClusterSeven will contribute time, money and resources to support this program. As the company continues to grow, it is looking for practical ways to contribute to the rejuvenation of the economy and the stabilization of the financial community. ClusterSeven, with its spreadsheet management software, advocates that transparency and accountability should be cornerstone principles in order to rebuild consumer confidence in all aspects of the financial services industry.
