Cryptocurrency is at the forefront of today’s marketplace, and Jump Trading’s new startup incubator Jump Labs is right up there in it.
Like the Research Park helps companies grow in its incubator, Jump Labs will do the same by investing anywhere from $35,000 to $50,000 into new cryptocurrency companies founded by those accepted into their brand-new internship program. The incubator at Research Park joins the Jump Trading family, which includes Jump Capital (investment) and Jump ARCHES (philanthropy). At the intersection of trading, tech, research, and finance, Jump employees are experts in the fields of software, hardware, networking, and more.
In addition to the incubator, Jump Labs positively benefits the UI campus by mentoring engineering students, visiting student organizations, and participating in panels at the Research Park.
